CORE SERVICES

Pennington Biomedical provides its researchers with state-of-the-art core services designed to improve efficiency, timeliness and precision of vital technical procedures needed across research boundaries. Core services are divided into three areas: clinical, basic, and population science.

Transgenics Core

MISSION

The GEMC currently produces mice for faculty at Pennington Biomedical Research Center as well as investigators at other institutions. The GEMC utilizes pronuclear microinjection and embryonic stem cell technologies to control gene expression in mice. The mission of the core is to establish a service at PBRC that will allow for the controlled manipulation of gene expression and facilitate investigators in understanding gene function. The core strives to provide services at prices that are below those that are commercially available.
