Genetic Engineering Technologies

The mission of the Genetic Engineering Technologies (GET) group is to provide The Jackson Laboratory’s faculty a one stop shop access to technical expertise, instrumentation, and centralized facilities necessary to carry out complex genetic engineering and to create genetically modified mice. We are fully competent taking a project from concept to delivery of live mice and performing genetic engineering in our laboratories, including allele design, construct development, microinjection, and genotyping of founder mice. We have extensive experience and success generating genetically modified mice on a variety of inbred and specialty strains. Other service offerings include genetic engineering consultation, training, custom genetic engineering projects, and provision of tested reagents and supplies.
