The Waisman Center iPSCService derives iPScell lines for the benefit of stem cell researchers at UW-Madison and beyond.
The development of CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing has altered how stem cell science is done.This technology allows quick and efficient generation of transgenic or isogenic lines for nearly unlimited research purposes that have previously been unfeasible. The Human Stem Cell Gene Editing Service CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing in human pluripotent stem cells.
While we believe every researcher should have access to this technology, individual labs should not have to adopt the technology to reap the rewards. As a core service, we will serve as the experts in generating cell lines so labs can focus on addressing underlying scientific questions.
