Other Events & Dates
January through February 2015


January 30, 2015 ( Friday )

2:00pm - 3:00pm
A CRISPR Transgenic Service

The Transgenic Facility at URMC is now using CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing to generate novel mouse strains. This revolutionary technology is much easier, faster, and cheaper than traditional methods of making mutant mice. This seminar will describe the services of the Transgenic Facility and offer practical guides for using CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing, as well as traditional transgenic and knockout approaches in the generation of mutant mouse strains to enhance individual research programs.
