CRISPR/Cas9 - ES Cell Training Class$1,900.00The purpose of the class is to provide training in the use of CRISPR/Cas9 technology and to provide the scientific background needed to make genetically engineered mouse models, rat models or engineered mouse ES cells. You will learn both methods and the principles behind the technology. You will be trained in all aspects of ES cell culture manipulation and the scientific background needed to produce gene targeted ES cell lines and mouse models. You will learn the methods and the principles of mouse genome engineering technology.
Pronuclear Microinjection Training$5,300.00Hands-on training in the pronuclear microinjection of fertilized eggs to produce transgenic founder animals. It is common for trainees to successfully produce founders.

ES Clone Expansion$1,100.00The Transgenic Core will place ES cell clones in culture. The cells will be cultured until several vials can be cryopreserved. The investigator will receive a cell pellet from which DNA or RNA can be extracted for verifcation of correct gene targeting in the cells. Twenty chromosome spreads will be counted and the modal chromosome number will be used to determine if the cells are euploid. The cells will be tested for mycoplasma contamination and assessed for gross differentiation .
