LMB 365 – Day 18

Day 18 of #LMB365 shows pronuclear injection of a transgenic DNA solution into a 0.5 day fertilised mouse egg. The egg is held in place onto a pulled glass holding pipette by suction. Pronuclear microinjection is one of the methods used to produce new transgenic mouse strains, which LMB scientists can use to study human diseases, and potentially identify new targets for treatments.
