TurboKnockout and CRISPR: Technologies for Rapid Generation of Gene Targeted Mouse/Rat Models

While genetically engineered mouse/rat models (GEMM) have been used widely in biomedical research and drug development, the design and generation of these models can be complicated, time-consuming and costly. In this presentation, Dr. Yu will first introduce CRISPR/Cas-mediated genome editing in GEMM generation, and discuss the pros and cons of CRISPR/Cas platform, he will then introduce TurboKnockout, the newest ES-cell based gene targeting technology, which allows the generation of GEMM models in as fast as 6 months, 4-6 months shorter than the standard ES cell gene targeting approach. Lastly, Dr. Yu will highlight germ-free platform used for biomedical research.
