Academic Research - Pool of available GEMs increases by 75 models

Taconic Biosciences has recently added an additional 75 mouse models to the GEM Collection Repository. The GEM Collection's nearly 300 lines provide academic and nonprofit researchers worldwide with unparalleled access to a wide range of genetically engineered mouse models.

These mouse models are relevant to several disease areas, such as cardiovascular, diabetes/ endocrinology, neuroscience, oncology, respiratory, and immunology. The GEM Collection repository offers nonprofit researchers immediate access to expertly designed, highly valuable research tools that rapidly accelerate functional genetic research. The collection provides resources to study the effect of both loss (constitutive and conditional) and gain of function mutations in the context of the whole animal.

The lines are maintained as frozen germplasm (sperm and/or embryos) allowing academic researchers on demand access with rapid recovery times. Eliminating the time associated with the design and development of these mouse models provides a tremendous competitive advantage.

  • Accelerated Time Lines: Live mice can be obtained in about 17 weeks. Lines are generally recovered from frozen sperm using state of the art embryological services.

  • Genetic Integrity: Most lines are congenic with the C57BL/6NTac inbred background. No time-consuming backcrossing is necessary.

  • Significantly Reduced Investment: Low cost access to complex models. There are no license fees giving nonprofits cost-effective access to the collection.
