INFRAFRONTIER H2020- Precision mammalian model development / rat models service call

INFRAFRONTIER Research Infrastructure / INFRAFRONTIER2020 Project - Trans-national Access call - January 2019

Precision rat model development

This Trans-national Access call of the INFRAFRONTIER2020 project supports a total of 3 precision rat model development projects. A complementary call provides support for 12 customised mouse model development projects.

  • Free-of-charge rat model development service implemented as a Trans-national Access activity supporting a total of 3 projects in this call.
  • The access unit offered covers the production of a single F1 genome-edited rat line (at least one individual of a F1 genome edited rat line will be provided).
  • The model development service using genome editing involves project design, preparation of sgRNAs and Cas9 mRNA/protein, and injection into zygotes to generate F0 founder mutant animals (Sprague Dawley genetic background).Selected F0 animals (very often mosaic) will be bred to germ line to produce F1 genome edited animals. Possible allele types that can be generated are indels, exon deletions (< 10kb) and point mutation insertions.

In collaboration with PHENOMIN-ICS

Proposal submission to by 15 February 2019. (Proposal evaluation from 15 February 2019 to 15 March 2019)

Jan. 7, 2019 CALL

INFRAFRONTIER2020 mouse axenic service call

In a Trans-national Access Call, Infrafrontier offers a service to derive germ-free mice for European researchers who study the role of the microbiome in metabolism, physiology, and immune function.

The `axenic´ service is free of charge. Access to the axenic service will be granted on the basis of scientific excellence and supports pilot projects for the derivation of-germ-free mice. Further breeding and characterisation of axenic mice or the development of gnotobiotic models can be offered on a fee-for-service or on a collaborative basis.

in collaboration with PHENOMIN-TAAM.

Deadline for submission of proposals: 31 January 2019

All details on website.

Oct. 25, 2018 SUMMER SCHOOL

3rd edition of the PHENOMIN's school: registration open !

Would you like to learn more about mouse functional genomics to improve your research?

  • Discuss your work in progress and receive advice on experimental design issues
  • Benefit from state-of-the-art expertise and innovative methods
  • Gain crucial skills required to choose, create and analyse the suitable mouse model for your research
  • Learn how to use the available resources from the international projects
  • Gain personnal connections with experts and peers throughout Euro

PHENOMIN's school provides the unique opportunity for you to discuss their research in detail with experts as well as peers.

  • Connection between doctoral education and international research projects
  • Theory and workshops
  • Networking and socialising

Do you expected concrete changes in the management of your experimental projects, in your animal facility, in the analysis and interpretation of the model data you use ?

This event is for you:

Have a look to the schedule program of the PHENOMIN school conisting of workshops on case study in order to support you in your model choice, phenotyping, taking into account the animal welfare. The program also addresses the item of continuing professional education consistent with the new European directive requirement for lab animal protection in experiments.

We will be delighted to welcome you !

Oct. 1, 2018 WEBINAR

CRISPR/Cas9 Genome Editing: Model Creation, Gene Therapy, and Beyond

Guillaume Pavlovic, PHENOMIN-ICS, will present a Webinar in collaboration with our partner Charles River 

The topic: While the power CRISPR/Cas9* has to achieve targeted mutations in nearly any species is clear, what conclusions can we truly draw about its use in genome editing? Attend our webinar, where we’ll answer this question and more with topics including:

  • Is genome editing safe and efficient for human therapy?
  • Will CRISPR help us rid the world of mosquitos, or find the cure for AIDS?
  • How to best expand research applications using deadCas9 protein?

*CRISPR/Cas9 used under license to granted and pending US and international patents from ERS Genomics Limited.

Have a scheduling conflict? Sign up even if you can't make it; we'll share the recording after.



Upcoming events


WEBINAR Series: Transgenic Mouse and Rat Model Creation

January 22 - 1, 2019, on line

G. Pavlovic, head of the genetic engineering department of PHENOMIN-ICS, had presented a serie of webinars:

PHENOMIN works with you from concept to model creation using homologus recombination, latest CRISPR/Cas9 and RNAi technology, and either other trangenic technics to deliver the most relevant model for your application. The effective research with rodent models depends on finding the best appropriated model for your project. How can we help you? Request a quote or email us.
