Animal Models and VectorBuilder-Related Seminar 4: Queens Medical Research Institute
Date: Sep 15, 2016
Presentation #1: Accelerating your research with custom-designed animal models from Cyagen
While the generation of transgenic mouse and rat models clearly provides invaluable insights into the specific function of proteins, the process of generating mice is often complicated, time-consuming and costly. Cyagen (www.cyagen.com) is the world’s leading provider of transgenic and knockout mouse and rat services offering a one-stop solution to all your animal needs. In this seminar we will highlight a number of our transgenic and knockout mouse and rat services. This includes BAC transgenics, our new PiggyBac transgenic mice and embryos, CRISPR-mediated genome editing technology and the launch of our CRISPR-based Rosa26 large-fragment knockin service. We will introduce our newest ES-cell based gene targeting technology - TurboKnockout®, a platform that allows the generation of conditional knockout/knockin mouse models within 6-8 months, at least 4-6 months shorter than the standard approach. Backed by our 100% guarantee, we are confident Cyagen can help you reach your research goals faster and more cost effectively, saving your lab time and money.
Presentation #2: VectorBuilder: The Evolution of Cloning
We are all aware of the plethora of issues and nightmares associated with vector construction and cloning. Luckily, Cyagen has made cloning for you obsolete! In this talk, we will introduce and perform a live demo of our new website www.vectorbuilder.com. VectorBuilder is a revolutionary new online tool that not only allows you to create your custom vectors with ease but also allows you to simply order them within minutes at an exceptionally low cost.
