Part 1.
Accelerating your research with custom-designed animal models from Cyagen
While the generation of transgenic mouse and rat models clearly provides invaluable insights into gene function and human disease, the process of generating transgenic animals is often complicated, time-consuming and costly. Cyagen ( is the world’s leading provider of custom-designed transgenic mice and rats offering a one-stop solution to all your animal needs. In this seminar we will give an overview of our services including:

PiggyBac transgenic mice and rats – single copy transgene integration
CRISPR-mediated genome editing – Knockouts/knockins
CRISPR-based Rosa26 large-fragment knockin – Up to 8kb
TurboKnockout® – conditional KO/KI mice in 6-8 months

Backed by our unique 100% guarantee and lowest prices in the industry, Cyagen can help you reach your research goals faster and more cost effectively, saving you and your lab time and money.

VectorBuilder: The only online tool for vector construction and ordering
The only reason cloning is not outsourced is because of cost and a need for communicating the precise details of each individual vector design for the experimental purpose. With VectorBuilder, this is no longer a problem. We will introduce and perform a live demo of VectorBuilder ( VectorBuilder is a revolutionary new online tool that not only allows you to create your custom vectors with ease but also allows you to simply order them within minutes at an exceptionally competitive prices and rapid turnaround times. Highlights of VectorBuilder include:
* Plasmids
* Lentivirus
* Adenovirus
* AAV (adeno associated virus)
* Tet-on/off
* Cre-lox
* Massive collections of ORFs
* Tissue-specific promoters
* Add tags/reporters/drug-selectable markers
