Specimen in petri dishThe Transgenic Core provides mouse genotyping and embryo freezing services for the research community of the University of Mississippi Medical Center.

The core provides interested investigators help in the design of PCR primers for genotyping of transgenic or gene-targeted mice. The core also provides protocols and reagents for the isolation of DNA from mouse tails for genotyping. It also performs mouse embryo freezing services for the research community including: appropriate hormone treatment of mice, collection of fertilized mouse embryos, embryo freezing and storage.

Available mouse models from the Transgenic Core can be found here.

Interested investigators should contact the Transgenic Core director for more information regarding these services.
