Generating Mouse Models Using CRISPR/Cas Technology and Getting the Most from Mouse Disease Models
Advanced Cre-lox: Generating Reporters, Inducible Mice, and Disease Models
Cre-lox technology is a widely used and sophisticated tool to create general knockouts, conditional knockouts, and reporter strains. Researchers worldwide utilize these models for a variety of applications, including specific disease research and visualization of mouse anatomy.
Generating Mouse Models Using CRISPR/Cas Technology
Do you need to generate new mouse models within 3-4 months instead of 1-1.5 years? Revolutionary CRISPR/Cas technology enables rapid, economical model generation through precise genome editing. During this seminar, you will gain an understanding of the potential of CRISPR/Cas to accelerate your research.
Achieving Reproducible Mouse Studies
Success in the drug development pipeline depends on success in basic and preclinical research. During this seminar, we will discuss unique experimental design considerations for mouse-based research.
