Transgenic and Knockout Core

The Mayo Clinic Transgenic and Knockout Core serves as a shared resource within the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center.

The Transgenic and Knockout Core generates transgenic and gene-targeted mice for cancer research projects that explore the underlying causes of cancer.

Transgenic and gene-targeted mouse models enable Mayo Clinic cancer researchers to study in vivo how the overexpression of specific genes and their mutants is involved in the initiation, progression and metastasis of certain types of human cancer.
