BRACT TRANSFORMATION RESOURCE: CALL FOR APPLICATIONSBRACT TRANSFORMATION RESOURCE: CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

12th Oct 2017

The BRACT crop transformation facility at the JIC has a long history of providing crop transformation resources to the research community.

Recently we have demonstrated targeted gene knock-outs in wheat, barley, Brassica oleracea, Brassica napus and tomato using RNA-guided Cas9.

We now have BBSRC funding to provide this capability to the UK research community free of charge.

We are able to provide guide selection, construct assembly, transformation and some initial screening for mutations.

Please contact Dr Tom Lawrenson (tom.lawrenson@jic.ac.uk) to discuss your precise requirements.

The deadline for expression of interest relating to targets in wheat, barley, Brassica oleracea, Brassica napus and tomato is 17th November 2017.

Please pass this on to any of your colleagues who might be interested in this outstanding resource.
