Transgenic facility tour info

Each year the Transgenic Facility hosts tour groups from Kentucky high schools, University classes and research labs. Group size and time limitations will determine the tour's contents. Typically, a tour group will:

  • Receive an overview of the transgenic animal production process
  • See a microinjection demonstration
  • Get hands-on experience by actually performing a microinjection (possibly resulting in the creation of a transgenic animal)


The UK Transgenic Facility is located in room 333 of the Dorothy Enslow Combs Cancer Research Building of the Lucille P. Markey Cancer Center on the University of Kentucky campus.
