IBG Gene Targeting and Transgenic Models Platform has recently established its research laboratories and state of the art technological infrastructure. Our platform will provide services and collaborative support to internal and external researchers working in basic and translational biomedical sciences, whose work involve or require the generation of genetically-engineered mouse models.
In addition to the services we offer below, our lab is interested in investigating rare genetic disorders utilizing transgenic mouse models.
Generation of knockout and knockin mouse models:
Our research platform invites researchers to collaborate with us for the generation of knockout and knockin mouse models for their favourite genes. We offer collaborations starting from initial planning and vector design stage to the final establishment of a genetically modified mouse colony.
Mouse embryo cryopreservation and rederivation:
The technological infrastructure for embryo cryopreservation and rederivation has been recently completed. After establishment of the relevant protocols, we will provide services to internal and external users who wish to store their transgenic mouse strains long term.
