The Genome Engineering and IPSC Center (GEiC)

The Genome Engineering and IPSC Center (GEiC) was formed by the consolidation of two    pre-existing cores, the Genome Engineering Center and the Induced Pluripotent Stem cell (iPSC) core, both established by the Department of Genetics in the past few years. These two Centers were established to facilitate functional genomic studies through the use of patient-derived iPSCs and the generation of modified cells and organisms using genome editing technologies. The recent merging of these Centers reflects the new opportunities afforded by uniting these powerful new technologies. The GEiC includes a consultative service whereby investigators are able to query experts in genomic engineering technologies and in generation and differentiation of patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs).
