As with CRISPR/Cas9*, a large genetic background panel for mice is available. Download our technical sheet


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Transgenic Mice

  • What is a transgenic mouse?

    The term "transgenic mouse model" is sometimes used to describe all genetically modified mice, and has sometimes been confused with knockin mice. Random transgenic mice are models that have the DNA material randomly inserted into the genome (a trans-gene) whereas with knockin and targeted transgenic mice the process is targeted and the desired gene is inserted into a specific locus via CRISPR/Cas9* or homologous recombination. This locus could be to mimic expression using an endogenous gene’s promoter, or be stable expression of the transgene from a safe location.

  • Which genetic background should I choose?

    Our team of scientists will work with you to determine the best model creation approach to suit your research, and can guide your development and selection from our large panel of available mouse genetic backgrounds (C57BL/6N, 129S2/SvPas, FVB/N, etc.).

  • What are some of the considerations of using transgenic mice?

    When the DNA is integrated, it could be placed under its own (strong) promoter, leading to high levels of expression (good for disease models) and an earlier or more robust phenotype. However, as the desired gene is placed randomly in the host genome, the new transgenic mouse model may not be as relevant a model of human disease. Characterization would be needed to determine how many copies of the transgene integrated and where they inserted. For further advice on using knockin, knockout, and random or targeted transgenic mice, please consult our scientific team.

  • New Gene Editing Tools, Fewer Animals?

    The use of CRISPR/Cas9 to edit genomes can lead to reductions in the number of mice and rats used in research. "In individual studies, there is a great opportunity for reduction," says one scientist. Learn why she calls for "an increase in sophistication in genome editing... [and] in the sensitivity and reproducibility of in vivo phenotyping tests." Read the full story

  • How CRISPR Accelerates Research

    CRISPR-Cas9 enables transgenic mice to be generated more quickly and more precisely than ever. Classical methods of genome editing in rodent models are effective, but slow. Using CRISPR/Cas9 to selectively introduce DNA damage and let cells repair themselves naturally reduces the timeline from months or years, to a matter of weeks. Read the full story
