Semi-Automated Imaging Technique for Cloned Cells, and Verification of Monoclonality -
In cell biology research, it is vital that cell lines under study be monoclonal, proliferating from a single cell. This is important for all applications in this field, such as the production of knock-down cells or clones which highly express some ...

KORC : Knock Out Rat Consortium

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - United States

The Knock Out Rat Consortium (KORC) is formed by individuals and institutions interested in the goal of creating knockout rats using multiple different technologies. Knockout rats can be used for functional genomics and also for drug discovery.

Mission Statement :

* The mission of the KORC is to create rats with single gene disruptions (knockouts) using all available technology.
* Our goal is create at least one rat with a null mutation corresponding to every gene in the rat genome.
* We will create all mutations on the same background strain of rat, namely Fischer.
* Each knockout will be bred into at least one male rat, which will be sacrificed for tissue collection and cryopreservation of sperm.
* Cryopreserved sperm can be used to create knockout rats with specific null mutations by the process called intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).

BioPathways Consortium (BPC)
United States

In May 2000, the BioPathways Consortium (BPC) was founded by Dr. Eric Neumann (then at 3rd Millennium) and Dr. Vincent Schachter (then at Hybrigenics) to respond to the emerging work in biopathways and create a venue for researchers to present their emerging work in biopathways. Since then it has met at each ISMB and PSB meeting, where presentations on new applications of pathways information have been given by leading researchers in the field. M
