The Transgenic Mouse / ES Cell Shared Resource assists investigators in generating, maintaining and storing germline-altered mice.  This resource, which has been in existence for over 23 years, has generated over 2700 transgenic founder mice from over 750 different DNA constructs and 5000 chimeric mice from over 800 different mouse ES cell clones.  Prior to the discovery of the CRISPR/Cas system, the TMESCSR generated over 160 different gene-targeted mice. Since 2013, the TMESCSR has generated over 400 mutant pups by CRISPR/Cas injections from over 100 different projects.

The Vanderbilt Transgenic Mouse/ES Cell Shared Resource (TMESCSR) provides services, consultation and collaborations to enable the generation, storage and regeneration of genetically altered mice at Vanderbilt.  

We have many years of experience in generating novel transgenic mouse models and are happy to discuss your project with you.  

The following procedures are currently provided on a fee-for-service basis:

We are sorry, but due to low utilization we can no longer provide mouse ES cell-based services on a routine, fee-for-service basis (please see notification letter).    

In addition, we are pleased to discuss collaborative projects that involve the development of new strategies and techniques.

Please email Ms. Jennifer Skelton, Leesa Sampson, PhD or Dr. Mark Magnuson with a short description of what you would like to do.
