Our overall goal is to provide a center for accepting and distributing high quality, well characterized inbred, hybrid and mutant rats to investigators. To this end, the RRRC will select and import rat strains and stocks important to the biomedical research community; rederive rats to a pathogen-free state; cryopreserve gametes and embryos; perform genotyping; and infectious disease monitoring to assure the quality of the rats, and distribute live rats, cryopreserved germplasm or tissues to investigators.  In addition, the RRRC performs a wide variety of fee-for-services designed to facilitate all aspects of rat-related research.

The RRRC is located at the University of Missouri's Discovery Ridge Research Park and is supported by funding from the National Institutes of Health (P40 OD011062).

RRRC News & Events RRRC at American Society of Human Genetics
Stop by Booth 949 (Research Resources in Metagenomics and Animal Models) in the Exhibitor Hall at ASHG 2017 in Orlando, FL on Oct 18-20 to discuss how we can help facilitate your research.  
Need a New Rat Model?
Need a new rat model?  The RRRC in conjunction with the MU Animal Modeling Core (AMC) can assist with the generation of transgenic rats, create knock-out and knock-in rats using CRISPR/Cas9 technology and genetically manipulate rat embryonic stem cells to make chimeric animals.  Contact us to discuss your rat model needs and how we can help.
Microbiota Characterization Now Offered
The RRRC now offers a full line of NGS-related services including fecal DNA extraction, 16S rDNA gene sequencing, and informatics analysis to researchers using rat models.  For more information, please see here or contact www.rrrc.us.
