The UC Irvine Transgenic Mouse Facility (TMF) is a core facility that provides services on a recharge basis for making, breeding, genotyping, importing, and preserving genetically-modified mice and embryonic stem cells. In addition to academic clients at UCI, we also service academic investigators at several other sister UC-campuses and numerous other universities throughout the USA as well as providing these services to commercial clients. The TMF's research associates have a combined 130 years of experience in generation of genetically engineered mice. Our experience can be your advantage.

CRISPR/Cas9 genome-editing services

As of September 2020, the TMF has successfully conducted 94 independent projects to modify the mouse genome via use of CRISPR / Cas9 with 11 more in progress. See the CRISPR-Cas9 Mediated Genome Engineering Services page for details.
