Specific Pig is a breeding, commercialization and biomedical research center specialized in the pig model.The researchers use the pig as an experimental model because of its physiological, physical and behavioral similarity with the human species, but the handicap is the size and associated costs. For this reason Specific Pig is working on a project to create dwarf pigs (minipigs) of about 35 kilograms with a very specific genetics that will facilitate handling, stabling and reduce food and medication costs.
