Genome Editing Core

Overview of Services

The Genome Editing Core (GEC) provides Joslin Diabetes Research Center (DCR) investigators with resources to manipulate the genome of laboratory mice with the aim of studying the genetics underlying diabetes and its complications.

The GEC maintains a facility for the generation of transgenic mouse models to aid in studying the genetic mechanisms underlying diabetes in vivo. The mouse modeling facility uses CRISPR/Cas9 or lentiviral RNAi constructs to introduce genome modifications to a variety of mouse lines in order to establish new models of the disease within a living mammalian system.
