Mouse Animal Production Service

Mouse Animal Production Service

The Mouse Animal Production Service (MAPS) generates transgenic mice through the microinjection of genetically modified embryonic stem (ES) cell lines generated by the service or provided by investigators at UBC, and other research groups from across Canada and around the world. The Facility has generated unique lines of mice, and its additional services are always evolving with the needs of its users as well as with advances in transgenic technics. Additional services include, electroporation (DNA constructs, ZFNs, or TALENs), chimera breeding, sperm cryopreservation, in vitro fertilization, strain recovery, timed pregnancies, pseudopregnant females, vasectomized males, mouse embryonic fibroblasts, ES cells of various genetic background, and ICR, 129, and C57BL/6J mice.
