Facility Details

The Genetics and Genome Banking Core assists in the design of breeding groups and monitors genetic diversity among the colony’s breeding animals. This core is responsible for maintaining a genome bank including DNA and cryopreserved primary fibroblast cell lines, including 700 cell lines and DNA samples representing nearly 9,000 animals. Genotype data using the NPRC standardized SNP array is available for 8,000 individuals and whole genome sequence is available for over 520 animals. Genomic data is available via mGAP and can be integrated with physical resource and records by contacting the core. Targeted genotyping for new model development and specialized breeding is also available.
