April 23, 2015

Registration is now closed (we are fully subscribed) for "Human iPSC Derivation and Culture," a three-day, hands-on workshop co-sponsored by HSCI and the UK Stem Cell Bank. Participants will learn current reprogramming techniques, and receive information about the following topics in iPSC technology:

  • Hands-on technical training in current reprogramming methodologies
  • Presentation of Sendai virus, episomal vector and mRNA reprogramming
  • Characterization methods for reprogrammed cells
  • Maintaining PSC on fedder free culture...

New CRISPR Services

March 13, 2014

The HSCI iPS Core has added several new CRISPR technology modules to its genome editing services:

  • Construction/Testing CRISPR vectors - This module delivers customized construction of a CRISPR guide RNA plasmid containing a synthetic guide RNA complementary to the DNA sequence in the genomic site to be targeted.
  • CRISPR/Cas9-mediated gene knock-out - This service includes electroporation of CRIPSR guide RNA and Cas9-GFP plasmids into 1 hPSC line.
  • CRISPR/Cas9-mediated gene introduction and/or repair - This service includes electroporation of a CRISPR guide RNA, Cas9-GFP plasmid and a single stranded oligodinucleotide (ssODN) containing wildtype or mutated DNA sequence into 1 hPSC line.

For more information, please see our complete list of genome editing services or contact Xin Jiang.
