The Transgenic Core produces mice for faculty at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center as well as investigators at LSUHSC-NO. The core utilizes pronuclear microinjection and embryonic stem cell technologies to control manipulation of gene expression and to facilitate investigators in understanding gene function. The core strives to provide services at prices that are below those that are commercially available. Our Transgenic Core scientists are here to accommodate all of your gene targeting needs from vector construct to chimeric mice.
