Mouse Genetics Core - Transgenic Core (WCMC)

Overview of Services


The primary role of the Mouse Genetics Core Facility (MGCF) is to facilitate the use of mouse molecular genetics at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center for in vivo studies of gene functions germane to cancer. Biological problems investigated using the services and expertise of the MGCF include cell survival and proliferation, embryonic development and cell differentiation, organogenesis, cell-cell interactions, immune responses, and the generation of mouse models of cancer. The MGCF consists of three interacting groups: the Transgenic/Embryology Group (TgG), the Tissue Culture Group (TCG), and the Colony Management Group (CMG). The MGCF performs work both at the Long Island City facility and on the main campus in Manhattan.
