Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) must be submitted to the ATRF Management Committee for all animal husbandry and experimental procedures to be used in the ATRF. The accompanying list of SOPs was generated to assist ATRF project applicants with their proposed work. Reference to the applicable SOP can be made on the submitted application form, and the document requested. All SOPs are the intellectual property of the respective authors and approval for use of an SOP will ultimately come from the author. Modification of an existing SOP is not permitted without the expressed permission of the author.
