Center for Mouse Genome Modification

Department of Cell Biology

Cell Biology Graduate Program

1. To provide consultation, expertise and collaboration with investigators to develop unique mouse strains and provide support in the management of these mouse strains for their research programs.

2. To provide comprehensive services to generate genetically modified mouse strains using state-of-the-art technology.

3. To develop novel and state-of-the-art technology in manipulation of the mouse genome and generation of novel mouse strains.

Specialties include molecular biology, mouse genetics and mouse developmental biology.
