Transgenic and Knockout Rat Services
The Animal Models Core offers a full range of rat genetic modification services including pronuclear microinjection for production of transgenic rats using plasmid or BAC transgenes and production of knockout/knockin rats by injection of CRISPR/Cas9 nucleases.
Genetically Engineered Rat Services
The availability of new tools for genetic modification of rats is leading many researchers to reconsider rats as a model of choice. The Animal Models Core offers a full range of rat genetic engineering services including
- Production of transgenic rats using plasmid or BAC transgenes
- Production of knockout rats by injection of CRISPR/Cas9 nucleases
- Production of knockin rats or conditional knockout rats by injection of CRISPR/Cas9 nucleases
- Production and validation of CRISPR/Cas9 nucleases for rat genome modification
- BAC recombineering, plasmid cloning, etc. to support rat projects
- Mutation screening, rat genotyping, and rat breeding services
