Facility Details

The Genome Engineering and induced pluripotent stem cell Center (GEiC) supports cancer center members with up-to-date technologies to meet their cell and animal model needs. On the genome engineering front, we offer a variety of services tailored to best fit investigators individual preference, ranging from CRISPR reagents with or without validation, to cancer/iPS cell line modification or animal model creation. We work closely with mouse cores from design, reagent validation to genotyping, process improvement and troubleshooting, when necessary. We also provide next-generation sequencing (NGS) based human cell authentication and NGS-based genotyping services and general molecular biology assistance. On the iPSC front, we culture, bank and store primary fibroblasts and renal epithelial cells from patient samples for investigators, and iPSC reprogramming service is provided from fibroblasts, RECs as well as peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs). The GEiC aims at helping investigators convert their idea to a useful model quickly and cost-effectively.
