Emory Mouse Transgenic & Gene Targeting Core
The Emory Mouse Transgenic and Gene Targeting Core (TMF)) provides state-of-the-art equipment and expertise for making genetically engineered mouse models, moving alleles on or off campus, or cryopreserving existing strains of mice.
The TMF is located in the vivarium on the ground floor of Emory Health Sciences Research Building. The laboratory space includes a fully-equipped tissue culture suite dedicated to mouse embryonic stem (ES) cell culture, microinjection/embryo manipulation space, and a surgical suite.
The TMF laboratory space also includes molecular biology space, and cryopreserved embryo/sperm archival space. The animal holding/breeding room is also located within the Health Sciences Research Building vivarium and is operated by the Division of Animal Resources (DAR).
In total, the TMF core facility is fully-equipped to perform all experimental procedures associated with the production of gene edited mice, and auxiliary procedures that include rederivation and cryopreservation services, and custom mouse needs.
