Abstract

INTRODUCTION: The Israeli Rat Genome Center, which is located at the Barzilai Medical Center Campus of the Faculty of Health Sciences of the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Ashkelon, was established to provide a repository of unique genetic strains of rats that were created in Israel and that simulate complex diseases. The Center incorporates models of: salt-sensitive hypertension (SBN/y and SBH/y rats), type 2 diabetes (CDr and CDs rats), combined hypertension and diabetes (CRDH) and additional genetic strains (transgenics, consomics, congenics). All these strains are available to researchers who are interested in the study of complex diseases, on the basis of collaboration. The Laboratory for Molecular Medicine within the Center also performs independent research on the genetic basis of complex diseases, including hypertension, diabetes, kidney disease and target organ involvement in cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. The Center collaborates with researchers from research centers in other medical centers and universities in Israel and worldwide.
