What do we do ?

The UC Irvine Transgenic Mouse Facility (TMF) core facility provides services for the design, generation, breeding, genotyping, importing, and preserving genetically-modified mice and embryonic stem cells. In addition to academic clients at UCI, we support academic investigators at several other sister UC-campuses and numerous other universities throughout the USA as well as providing these services to commercial clients. The TMF's research associates have a combined 130 years of experience in generation of genetically engineered mice. Our experience can be your advantage.
