Genetically modified mouse strain is a measure tool for bio-medical research. Till date there is no facility in India where genetically modified mouse strain can be generated. IIT Kanpur is constructing a state of the art of animal facility designed for this purpose. It is a three story, 1500 sq. ft. access controlled sterile facility. The first floor will have Quarantine, two Rat room and two Rabbit room enclosures. This floor will also have a modern animal surgical facility. (Rat and Rabbit room: 2 lakhs)

The first floor will have a behavioral facility where genetics basis of animal behavior will be examine (50 Lakhs).

The top floor will have mouse housing facility equipped with individually ventilated caging system, mobile changing station and clean and dirty corridors (1 crore, Rat and Rabbit room: 2 lakh each).

The top floor will also have a state of the art molecular biology facility to create transgenic DNA construct (1 Crore).

The next to the transgenic room will be the facility where stem cell culture room, IVF (In Vitro Fertilization facility) and actual transgenic core will be constructed. To the best of your knowledge this is the first of its kind in the country (5 Crore).

There are five faculty members of BSBE who have prior experience of using transgenic animal and are capable of generating such strains. In this context it is worth mentioning that in recently conducted study by Elsevier commissioned by Department of Science & Technology (DST). Publication from IIT Kanpur has the highest citation per pay in the field of Bio Chemistry Molecular Biology & Genetics (http://dst.gov.in/news/bibliometric-commissioned-study-elsevier-2015; Page 85). This data suggest that at IIT Kanpur cutting edge research is conducted in this area.

The faculty members of BSBE have links with RIKEN centers in Japan, Harvard University, Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital etc. leading transgenic facilities. Thus once the infrastructure is available there is core competence and collaborative possibilities which will ensure routine generation of genetically modified mouse strain at IIT Kanpur. This facility will not only augment research capability of IIT Kanpur faculty members but will also serve as a national resource center. Generation of a transgenic mouse from a foreign facility cost approx. 35 lakhs rupees per strain. Therefore, the national resource center can generate revenue for IIT Kanpur and will ensure self-sustainability of the animal facility of IIT Kanpur.

It will also help the incubated companies at the Bio-Incubator of IIT Kanpur. Such a facility will reduce the time and cost to market for such companies.
