Ancillary Phenotyping

We plan to behaviorally phenotype and genotype 4,800 rats over the next four years. After behavioral phenotyping we will sacrificed each rat and perform an abbreviated necropsy. At this time we will collect tissue samples that will be sent to collaborating labs for ancillary phenotype. Please contact us to request tissue samples. We may also be able to add additional phenotyping prior to sacrifice on a fee-for-service basis. We will perform genome wide association analyses for these ancilary phenotypes on a collaborative basis.

We currently have ancillary phenotyping collaborators in US and Europe:
