The Mutation Generation and Detection Core (MGD) Facility specializes in providing custom TALEN and Crispr-Cas9 DNA nucleases to induce targeted mutations in a genomic region of your interest. TALEN and Crispr-Cas9 DNA nucleases are a cutting edge technology for performing reverse genetic studies in multiple model systems, including, but not limited to Zebrafish, Drosophila, C. elegans, Mouse, and mammalian tissue culture.
The MGD Core also offers services to identify induced mutations using High Resolution Melt Analysis (HRMA). Our support includes hardware, reagents, and expert advice for optimizing and performing HRMA for your gene of interest. The MGD Core also offers Services for preforming custom HRMA analysis for mutation detection and genotyping. Please contact the Director of the MGD Core for details on this service.
