The Postgenomic Era. Cryoarchiving by the Example of Mustelids

... embryotechnological approach, e.g. cryobanking, for the preservation of endangered mustelid species. Initially this project involved polecats and, in part, stoats. The goal of the first stage was to demonstrate that the mustelid embryos could survive cryopreservation at the temperature of liquid nitrogen; it is noteworthy, that no positive result has been known in the world by the moment when this project started. Moreover, there had been no method applicable for freezing Carnivora embryos except ...
