Genome Editing Center

Overview of Services

The Indiana University Genome Editing Center at Indiana University School of Medicine is an institutionally subsidized shared resource whose mission is to provide Indiana University and external investigators access to state-of-the-art genome editing technologies by providing assistance with the generation of genetically modified organisms in a time- and cost-effective manner. The center exploits various technologies, including CRISPR-based genome editing systems, conventional gene targeting in embryonic stem cells and transgenesis, to engineer genetically modified transformed cell lines, stem cells and animals that will help identify and validate novel therapeutic targets, accelerate translational research and advance precision medicine.
