Transgenic and Gene Targeting Core

Welcome to the Transgenic and Gene Targeting Core (TGT Core) at Georgia State University. The TGT Core is a research resource for investigators at Georgia State University as well as surrounding institutions to produce genetically engineered animal models.

Services

Microinjection of DNA constructs into the pronucleus of single-cell embryos
Microinjection of lentiviruses into perivitelline space of single-cell embryos
To request services, please fill out the forms and submit the completed and signed form to Core Director Dr. Chengliu Jin.
Blastocyst microinjection of embryonic stem (ES) cells
CRISPR/Cas9 Technology: Pronuclear or cytoplasmic microinjection of Cas9 mRNA, sgRNA and Donor DNA
To request services, please fill out the forms and submit the completed and signed form to Core Director Dr. Chengliu Jin.
This service is used to rederive animals via embryo transfer:

  • Rederivation from frozen embryos to recover the frozen stocks or to import animal strains
  • Rederivation from pathogen infected strains to eradicate unwanted infectious agents which may confound one’s animal research data

To request services, please fill out the forms and submit the completed and signed form to Core Director Core Director Dr. Chengliu Jin.
