UTHealth Transgenic and Stem Cells Service Center

Overview of Services

 

The Transgenic and Stem Cells Service Center was established in 1998 and since that time, it has generated over 750 new transgenic, knock-out and knock-in mouse animal models for investigators from UTHealth, as well as for scientists from numerous other academic institutions. The stem cell lines that have been derived in the laboratory are highly effective for the generation of knock-out/ knock-in mice and for cell differentiation studies. These cell lines are routinely used in the Core Facility and are also commercially distributed. In addition to the production, cryopreservation and re-derivation of genetically-engineered mice and rats, the services of the facility also include gene targeting, using ES cells or CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing and intellectual/technical support in different aspects of microsurgery, cell culture and stem cells research.
