Genome Editing Macquarie (GEM)

Genome Editing Macquarie is a service which generates customised genetically modified rodents for medical research purposes.

We use cutting edge technologies (e.g. engineered endonucleases such as ZFN and CRISPR) for genome editing, and aim at developing sophisticated animal models for the study of human diseases.

Our services

Genome Editing Macquarie provides new opportunities and excellence in animal models to researchers at Macquarie University and external partners.

Services offered by GEM include fusion chimeras, pronuclear injection of zygotes (plasmids and BAC transgenesis), targeted transgenesis (ES cells injection of blastocysts and nucleases injection in zygotes), In-Vitro Fertilization, cryopreservation, rederivation, and genotyping. We also provide expert advice on design and realization of projects, streamlining of the workflow, and management of colonies.
