  Taitung Animal Propagation Station (TAPS) is a branch of the Livestock Research Institute (LRI), located in southeastern Taiwan. Due to the fact that minipigs are physiologically and anatomically similar to that of the human body, and are thus suitable for the development of a variety of models for biomedical research, the indigenous minipigs, the Lanyu breed, were introduced from Lanyu Islet to TAPS in 1980. After decades of selection of inbreeding, four minipig breeds have been bred, and were officially registered from 2003 to 2011. TAPS is not only the institution that takes charge of conservation, selection of minipigs but also the minipig supplier for biomedical research which facilities and animal care programs have been AAALAC accredited since 2013.
