Transgenic model organisms are important tools for investigating a variety of biological and biomedical processes. The module "Transgenic model organisms" provides an overview of the production and analysis of such genetically modified model organisms.

Participants learn which model organisms are used for what purposes. Also determining how they are produced and the biological and as also legal conditions are part of this module. Other focal points of the module are examples of transgenic model organisms for different diseases (especially for neuroscience issues) as well as the analysis of model organisms by in vivo imaging to behavioral analysis.
