Share Article

In this free webinar, the featured speakers will discuss the key downstream model applications to consider during model design and how much project and scientific management is needed during model creation. Attendees will learn about the important model development services to be considered before and during model creation.

Creating reliable animal models for long-term studies can often be problematic, not necessarily due to the complexity of the genetic modification(s) required, but with how that genetic modification will perform in the model.

Join experts from Envigo Lauren Klaskala, Project Manager – Custom Transgenic Models and Justin Zhao, PhD, Principal Scientist in a live webinar on Wednesday, July 8, 2020 at 11am EDT (4pm BST/UK).

Nuclease-based technologies such as CRISPR and ZFN have simplified the way we genetically engineer new models. However, while modifying the genome may be more straightforward, the challenge to create an optimal model for the desired application remains. Creating reliable animal models for long-term studies can often be problematic, not necessarily due to the complexity of the genetic modification(s) required, but with how that genetic modification will perform in the model. Suboptimal design strategies can compound these challenges by generating undesired genotypic or phenotypic results thus producing an ineffective model.

CRISPR-Cas9 or zinc-finger nuclease (ZFN)-based technologies can circumvent the challenges of complex genetic alterations due to their precision. When focusing on what the exact need or application will be for the model, optimal designs can be determined that then yield a reliable model for its specific application. Whether the modification to be produced is a humanization, replacement, conditional knockout, constitutive knockout, large deletion, point mutation, cDNA insertion, or reporter tagging, if careful consideration is given to the goal for the model usage and application, then optimal designs yield superior models.

When considering new model creation and development, scientists often focus on generating the model itself and overlook the downstream services required afterward, including initial model characterization, cryopreservation, breeding, and colony expansion. Envigo is the scientist alongside their customers – taking in all considerations for the model application and all the products and services needed to create, develop, and maintain the model.
