Research The ISTT is involved in all levels of transgenic research in animals, from the animal technician to the senior scientist. This link will take you to our research page that includes relevant publications, CRISPR/Cas9 resources and news pertaining to transgenic technology. Training The ISTT sponsors meetings, workshops and training courses in transgenic technology. One of our most popular offerings is the Transgenic Technology (TT) meeting. To see the latest offerings, and to see how to apply for ISTT sponsorship of your training opportunity, please click here. Sponsor The ISTT is very grateful to our generous sponsors who provide us with support to continue our work. ISTT sponsors offer valuable goods and services necessary for transgenic technologies. The resources provided to the ISTT allow us to host the TT meetings, provide awards for our members, and assist with website support. Please visit our sponsorsí page.

The new and accelerating technical development of the CRISPR/Cas9 system opens up for the possibility of targeted genetic modifications in germline competent human embryos. This is an avenue, which until very recently has been regarded as absolutely off limits. To cross the border between genetic modifications of somatic cells and germline cells was simply not conceivable, at least in most Western countries. Indeed, the border has not yet been crossed, but we are getting closer.
