Generation of transgenic mice for the testing of tissue for the BSE or scrapie agents. This seems to be a relatively simple process a long way behind Prusiner's group and Collinge but funded by the EC, also interested in genotypes. Now interested in the production and testing of methods of diagnosis using monoclonals.
