Gene Transfer Core


Ashok Kulkarni, Ph.D., Manager  



The Gene Transfer Core provides research and technical services to NIDCR laboratories for the generation and preservation of genetically altered animal models. These services mainly include: 1) providing consultations for developing strategies to generate transgenic and gene knockout mouse models, 2) conducting gene targeting experiments using various mouse embryonic stem (ES) cells, 3) performing injections of transgenic constructs and ES cell clones, as well as embryo transfers to generate founder and chimeric mice, and 4) carrying out cryopreservation of mouse embryos and sperm to preserve valuable mouse lines.
