Seminar Details

Microinjection in Zebrafish and Medaka: From Transgenesis to CRISPR

Target group:

Research technicians and scientists interested in the generation of genetic modified fish models. Basic experience with molecular biology techniques is required.

Objective of seminar:

The aim of the course is to provide participants with hands-on tutorials and the theory behind microinjection into medaka and zebrafish. In addition, participants will learn to design CRISPR constructs.

Content of seminar:
  • Microinjection of lineage tracers into one-cell stage embryos
  • Co-injection of DNA and mRNA into one-cell stage embryos
  • Microinjection of CRISPR/Cas constructs
  • Targeted inactivation of pigment loci or genes of interest provided by applicants (medaka and zebrafish)
  • Homology directed repair in fish
  • Screening by imaging
  • High throughput, high content screening for successful events
  • Molecular validation of Crispr/Cas9 mediated indel formation
