Engineering genetic mutations in the mouse - 2024 Edition

27 Jun 24

The first session will concentrate on the well-established methods of classical transgenesis and gene-targeting via embryonic stem cells, and will include examples of how to produce a range of mutation types; for example over-expression models, gene knock-outs and point mutations, both constitutive and conditional.

The second session will address more recent developments, such as the use of gene-editing nucleases, their advantages and limitations, and novel methods of gene transfer.



Date: Thursday, 27th June 2024

Time: 9:30  – 13:00

Place: Fèlix Serratosa Auditory (Parc Científic de Barcelona)
