Genetic Engineering and Gene Therapy

Overview

The Genetic Engineering and Gene Therapy Core (GEGT) provides access to an expanded array of customized viral and non-viral vectors, cell marking and reprogramming services, and state-of-the-art reagents for site-specific gene insertion. The mission of the GEGT Core is to work cooperatively with investigators to facilitate the development of genetic engineering reagents required for their in vitroand in vivoexperiments.

Services

  • Generating recombinant viral vectors and special non-viral vectors
  • Providing premade and customized viral or non-viral vectors to investigators
  • Generating genetically marked cell clones
  • State-of-the-art reagents for site-specific gene insertion for cell marking, phenotypic correction/modification or down-regulation of gene expression
  • Training, consultation and educational services
