The CRI Mouse Genome Engineering Core Facility is committed to helping researchers produce mouse models to support fundamental and translational research, providing transgenic, gene targeting and other services. Established in 2014, the facility serves scientists at CRI, UT Southwestern and other institutes.
The Mouse Genome Engineering Core Facility performs DNA microinjection services, CRISPR/Cas9 microinjection services, ES cell manipulation and other microinjection services to generate transgenic mice, knock-in/knock-out mice and chimeric mice harboring select genetic mutations. Other services include mouse sperm cryopreservation and recovery, in vitro fertilization (IVF), rederivation of pathogen free mouse lines and derivation of mouse embryonic stem cell lines.
Our staff provides general consultations on experimental designs and vectors for gene modification-related projects, DNA preparation, recombinant ES clones, mouse genotyping, colony breeding and husbandry. We can also customize services as requested to support the development of animal models for modeling human diseases.
Generation of genetically modified mouse for biomedical research:
