Mouse Genetics Core

Mouse Genetics Core

CORE MANAGERS: SEE SERVICE

The Mouse Genetic Core provides a shared resource for the establishment of mutant mouse models for DRC research. The Core coordinates DRC members with contacts to a number of UCSF-wide facilities for knock-out/knock-in and transgenic mouse generation. For more information as well as to initiate an order, please contact the specific websites and Core Managers listed for each service in the Services link to your right.

The Mouse Genetics Core also lowers the cost barriers (see Rates link) for the development of mutant models pertinent to type 1 and type 2 diabetes research.
