Division of Reproductive Engineering

  • Prof.ToruTakeo.jpgWe seek to unravel mechanisms of reproductive biology and make innovations in reproductive technology in mammals.
    We solved critical problems in mouse reproductive technology which is widely used in transgenic facilities and mouse repositories. Our technology is available from our online manual. In addition, we provide service of mouse repository (CARD Mouse Bank) which collaborates with our international partners.


Our Mission

  • -Discover novel compounds and materials to regulate
  •  reproductive functions
  • -Comprehend unrevealed rules in Reproductive Biology and
  •  Cryobiology
  • -Provide solutions in Reproductive Technology
  • -Develop a robust system and network of bioresources (Mice and Rats)
  • -Share the latest techniques and knowledge of Reproductive Technology
  • -Grow young scientists and technicians in Reproductive Technology

  • We provide service of mouse embryo and sperm bank
  • (CARD Mouse Bank) since 1998. CARD Mouse Bank is a founding member of International Mouse Strain Resource (IMSR). We developed original searchable database of genetically engineered mice archived in CARD Mouse Bank (CARD R-BASE). Totally, 2,719 strains of genetically engineered mice are available.
  • If you want to order the mice, please visit our ordering website.
