Goal: To provide the IDDRC members with state-of-the-art services for the design and generation of genetically engineered mouse models of IDD. The vector facility constructs vectors to generate transgenic, knockout and knockin animals and vectors with tissue-specific promoters. Additional services include the screening of ES cells generated from gene targeting constructs. The IDDRC has teamed with the NINDS-funded Vector Core of the RMND Center to provide these services. W. Chick designs the constructs that are subsequently engineered by K. Williams. The ES cell and mouse work is done in collaboration with the Transgenic and Gene Targeting Core.
