“Transgenebank” (Russian collection of genetic material) was organized on the basis of the Institute of Gene Biology RAS in 1995, registered in the Ministry of Education and Science as a Unique Scientific Facility (UNU), for depositing human and animal genetic material. "Transgenebank" actively participates in international scientific cooperation, conducts procurement and exchange of genetic material.

As part of "Transgenebank" there is a cryo-bank of sperm of experimental and pedigree goats, which is used to organize industrial herds of goats - producers of the human lactoferrin protein.
