Zebrafish Transgenic Services:

C. elegans are an amazing model organism, but that doesn’t mean everyone wants to work with worms. That is why we are proud to announce we have expanded the model organisms we work with to include zebrafish as well. If you’ve been having trouble getting the right recombinant, check out our zebrafish services today to see what we can do for you.

New Variant Analysis Platform:

Performing sequence analysis on a patient with a suspected genetic disease is becoming a standard of care. However, when a genetic variation is identified as pathogenic in a disease state, clinicians and patients are faced with making difficult care decisions. NemaMetrix has developed a platform that allows us to undertake functional analysis of variants to better understand genetic mutations which may or may not impact an individual’s health.

Humanized Transgenics

Humanized Transgenics:

In either C. elegans or Zebrafish, a native model organism gene can be replaced by a human gene with the same biological function. Mutations can be introduced into the human gene in order to make a disease variant. Alternatively, the human gene can be expressed in specific tissues or stages of development.

Genetic diversity in individuals and between species is responsible for bewildering variability and biological niche adaptation of life, yet much of the essential genes involved in disease presentation are highly conserved from yeast to humans…

Q: What is the difference between the Worminator and the WMicroTracker?

A: Both are capable of giving phenotyping information of a similar nature, the Worminator and the WMicroTraker are in fact very different and respond to different requirements (acquisition time, type of media, ease of use, maintenance and user experience)… Read the full comparison
