Introduction to Genetic Engineering
Self-paced Online MiniCourse · 1 – 2 hours · Digital badge and certificate eligible
Learn the basics of three genetic engineering techniques that generate genetically modified mice used in biomedical research.
- The basic workflow of three genetic engineering techniques: embryonic stem (ES) cell-based engineering, CRISPR/Cas9 and transgenesis via pronuclear microinjection
- Advantages and limitations of each genetic engineering technique
- Types of genetic modifications generated
- Biomedical research applications
This MiniCourse is designed to meet the needs of people who are new to working with genetically engineered mice in genetic and genomic research projects, including graduate and postdoctoral students, advanced undergraduates with a background in biology, research assistants, early-career scientists, lab technicians, mouse colony managers and staff.
