Microbiota Characterization
 April 02, 2015
The gut microbiota (GM) is now recognized as a key factor in health and disease.  Differences in the composition of the gut microbiota of research animals may contribute to altered phenotypes or poor reproducibility of animal-based studies.  Culture-independent techniques such as next-generation sequencing (NGS) allow in-depth characterization of the gut microbiota.  The MMRRC now offers a full line of NGS-related services including fecal DNA extraction, 16S rDNA gene sequencing, and informatics analysis to researchers using mouse models.  For more information, please see here or contact

Sperm cryopreservation requires submission of 3, preferably breeding, males, 10-24 weeks of age. You will receive frozen sperm aliquots in sterile CBS high-biosecurity straws.

Embryo cryopreservation requires submission of 10, preferably breeding, males, 10-24 weeks of age, and submission of about 30 females 7-12 weeks of age. You will receive all cryopreserved morula-stage embryos collected from the donor females you provide (~20 embryos per sterile CBS high-biosecurity straws).
