Genetics

The IDG Genetics Group generates mouse mutants for internal scientific projects and external collaborations. The High-Throughput Molecular Genetics uses several techniques to generate mutant mice, mainly CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing technologies. The generated mutant mice are phenotyped by the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC). The Genetic Tools Development teams develops new mutagenesis tools and provides infrastructure and a microinjection service for the generation of mouse mutants. The Bioinformatics team develops data infrastructures for the high-throughput analysis of mouse mutants and is involved in the modelling of genetic and protein interaction networks.
