What can we help you with
“My research group has been in close contact with CCP for more than 5 years. Their excellent assistance with the mouse models has been essential for several high profile studies we have published in the last two years. Currently, we are analyzing together novel mouse knockout strains with the exciting phenotype. I very much appreciate CCP expertise in the phenotyping of both embryonic as well as adult mice. We would not be able to get that far without their help.”
Masaryk University, Brno
“My group has been collaborating with and using services of the Czech Centre for Phenogenomics (CCP) since it was established. Thanks to CCP’s excellent expertise and adoption of the newest technologies, we were able to obtain many mouse models using TALEN and, later, CRISPR technologies. I also highly value CCP’s assistance with phenotype analysis, particularly with complex novel phenotypes where their expertise and advice helped us a lot to understand biological roles of studied genes.”

“We closely collaborate with the CCP for over four years and we have had only the best experience. Together we generated multiple mouse models of inducible and tissue-specific mitochondrial deficiency, which took our research to a whole new level. Everyone at the CCP has always been very helpful whenever we needed advice or practical help. We are happy to have the opportunity to work together and we plan new challenging projects for the future.”

“I am most deeply impressed by the professionality of the CCP. Specifically, the interaction with your colleagues, who analyze our ARHGAP11B-transgenic mice, has been a real pleasure. It is clear to me that your colleagues are top-notch experts. I think you should be proud of the CCP that you have built up! It certainly is a world-class center!”

“We established a collaboration with the CCP for a knock-out mouse model. They are highly professional and cooperative and offer a wide range of detailed analyses that have enriched the quality of our project. In our case, the gene they deleted is a noncoding RNA (ncRNA), and although the functionality of this class of genes is poorly characterized and their phenotypic analyses can lead to non-canonical outputs, they immediately join this challenging project with dedication and carefulness. We also had the opportunity to visit the institute, and we were positively impressed to see such a fully equipped facility. Highly recommended!”
Sapienza University of Rome
“After several unsuccessful gene targeting in mouse embryonic stem cells, using traditional methods and also CRISPR/Cas9, we approached CCP Transgenic Unit to help us to create a mouse model with single nucleotide exchange in the gene of our interest. They created the strategy, optimized conditions, injected mice and in four months we received first chimeras and in few weeks got germ line transmission. For very reasonable price. Perfect!”
Palacky University Olomouc
“I was most impressed by the professionalism, cooperativeness, efficacy and technical competence of the CCP staff. Thanks to their expertise and cutting-edge technologies for constructing knock-out and transgenic mice, their skill in phenotyping technologies and scientific insight, our collaborations at CCP enabled us to move our projects a new level of scientific relevance. It is a real pleasure to have such a supportive and invaluable expert partner involved in your work.”

About Czech Centre for Phenogenomics
Genetically modified mouse models have become a key tool in basic and biomedical research. The ability to engineer the mouse genome has greatly transformed biomedical research in the last decade. Crucial for this technology is the ability to control the expression of genes of interest. It is possible to increase or decrease gene expression, or eliminate the expression of a gene completely.
Transgenic and gene knockout/knockin technologies have become important experimental tools for assigning functions to genes at the level of whole complexity of organism, creating models of genetic disorders, evaluating effects drugs and toxins, thus helping to answer fundamental issues in basic and applied research.
