The Transgenic Resources Program (TRP) is a core facility that creates transgenic and gene-targeted mice using pronuclear microinjection, targeted ES cell microinjection, and CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing.  The TRP also offers mouse rederivation services to create specific pathogen free mice or to rederive cryopreserved mouse lines.  Additionally, embryo and sperm cryopreservation services are available to provide long-term storage of valuable mouse strains or stocks.


Our facility is available to all University of Washington investigators and outside institutions.

Contact Robert J Hunter for more information.
