JAX Webinar - CRISPR/Cas9: Moving from Founder Mice to Phenotyping

CRISPR/Cas9 techniques are quickly growing in popularity for the generation of new mouse models for research. This webinar will help you understand the complexities associated with the diverse alleles that can be generated, how to deal with mosaicism, and how to move from a single founder mouse to larger cohorts for phenotype characterization. Join us as we discuss the following topics: • The molecular mechanisms that drive the array of possible mutations that can result from a single Cas9/sgRNA targeting strategy • Various common targeting strategies to generate indel, knockout, and knockin mutations using CRISPR/Cas9 • Selection of founder mice and breeding strategies for mitigating mosaicism in founder mice • Breeding strategies to establish a colony and generate cohorts for experimentation
