Mouse Genetics Core

 

The Mouse Genetics Core provides a shared resource for the establishment of mutant mouse models for DRC research. The Core coordinates DRC members with contacts to a number of UCSF-wide facilities for knock-out/knock-in and transgenic mouse generation. For more information as well as to initiate an order, please contact the specific websites and Core Managers listed for each service under Services.

The Mouse Genetics Core also lowers the cost barriers for the development of mutant models pertinent to type 1 and type 2 diabetes research.

Rates

The purpose of the DRC Mouse Genetics Core is to coordinate DRC investigator access to UCSF-wide mouse genetic modification facilities. The DRC also lowers the barriers for access to these facilities by contributing a portion of the recharges by for diabetes-related research projects by DRC investigators. Prior to providing recharge information to the Core conducting the service, contact the DRC Director of Cores, Fred Schaufele (freds@diabetes.ucsf.edu) to obtain information about current DRC contributions for the services requested.

Rates for each service are posted at the sites for the individual Cores providing the service. Rates are approved by the UCSF Recharge Office.
