Core Support Units
Cogentech includes facilities for mouse work, protein and antibody production and DNA analyses.
Mouse Facilities: Two facilities currently provide researchers with the possibility to carry out experiments in animal model systems: i) the Mouse Genetics facility (Director: A. Gobbi), which deals with mice housing and caring, colony maintenance and expansion; ii) the Transgenic facility (Director: E. Allievi) which provides support for the generation of transgenic and knock-out mice.
Protein Chemistry Facility: This facility offers integrated services for the production and characterization of recombinant proteins, maintains a collection of vectors, strains and protocols, and helps users generate monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies.
DNA Services: This facility offers DNA sequencing, human cDNA Library Colony Picking and Real Time PCR technologies.
