Creating Mouse Models through Transgenic Technologies
July 11, 2017
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM CT

WEB-029: Do you work with transgenic mice? No doubt you have heard about the transgenic technologies used to generate these mice, but would you like to know more about how these technologies work? In this webinar, we will demystify how transgenic, knockout, and knockin mice are generated by various technologies. We will explain embryonic stem cell injections, tissue and temporal control of gene expression, genome editing nucleases, including CRISPR. Because CRISPR has revolutionized the transgenic field, we will focus mainly on why CRISPR applications have been so successful for the fast and efficient editing of the mouse genome.  

Learning objectives:

  • Describe the difference between transgenic, knockout, and knockin mice.
  • Explain the different genetic technologies used to engineer transgenic mice.
  • Summarize why, when, and how to generate conditionally expressed/knocked out genes.
  • Describe how CRISPR works and the benefits of its applications.

Audience: Senior technicians, managers, supervisors, veterinarians
