Some common services
After consultation with the investigator, CRISPR project design and reagent synthesis is completed. Reagents are injected into rodent embryos, and resultant pups are genotyped. The line can be returned to the investigator while also cryopreserved.
Genome Editing and Animal Models Core (GEAM), formerly Transgenic Animal Facility, was established in 1988 and has a long history of providing UW Madison researchers access to the latest technology for generating transgenic and gene targeted animals at a reasonable cost. We have been nationally recognized for our work in manipulating rat embryos and have been very successful in incorporating CRISPR/Cas9 technology into our program.
GEAM is a Shared Resource of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Carbone Cancer Center.
