Lentiviral vectors are powerful tools to deliver genetic material into almost any cell or tissue, and are useful even in the creation of transgenic animals. They have been shown to deliver foreign genes not only to mammalian cells, but also in cells derived from fish, birds and amphibians. We are collaborating with InStem/NCBS to generate transgenic primitive metazoans.
