Getting started

    1. Sample information

    Please, contact Genome Editing Core to first have a consultation session on your project. You will be given the required paperwork during these sessions.

    Required information include:

    • Contact persons for the project
    • Cell lines in question and what modifications they are to go through
    • Any expected consequences of the genetic modification to cell viability or phenotype
    • Any expected consequences of the genetic modification to biosafety level of the edited cells
    • Preferred analysis method to confirm the success of genetic modification (performed by customer)
    • Detailed culture protocols for cells of interest
    • Information about methods previously successfully used

    2. Conducting the project

    Genome Editing Core staff will perform the following parts of your project:

    • Design gRNA and repair template (knock-in) sequences
    • Perform Cas9 RNP nucleofection to cells of interest in order to introduce gene edit
    • Analyze the efficiency of the gene editing at DNA and protein level in bulk cell population

    We expect the customer to:

    • Supply us with culture medium and supplements required for cell culture (of other than vector producer cells)
    • Perform the analysis (often by Western blot or qRT-PCR), though core staff will perform the lysis
