About Us : Overview
The Murine Embryonic Stem Cell Core has been created to help you create mutations in murine embryonic stem cells. The core has several missions, including development of state-of-the-art reagents for the production of targeted mutations in embryonic stem cells, the creation of quality-controlled embryonic stem cell lines, and the teaching of methods for embryonic stem cell culture and manipulation. The core provides quality-controlled cells developed here at Washington University. In addition, our core can provide a teaching service, so that "hands-on" production of targeted ES clones can be learned. Finally, the core will attempt to assist all users with blastocyst injection, if injection services are not available to that laboratory. By providing a comprehensive service, we hope to facilitate the production of gain-of-function and loss-of-function mouse models for our faculty.
