Through this CPD you will gain a background to the advancing technology of genome editing using the CRISPR/Cas9 system in mice.

You will learn the most common systems in use work and give a practical understanding of both the advantages and the limitations of using genome editing for germline transgenesis in mice.

This CPD is run by the prestigious Medical Research Council, and will also provide you with information for developing quality control strategies which are essential for reproducible and robust research.


Key outcomes include:

  • knowledge of genome editing in the mouse and when it might be applicable
  • an understanding of quality control required when using this technology to produce GA mouse lines
  • an introduction to the planning and designing CRISPR/Cas9 experiments
