Genetic engineering encompasses methods and technologies to manipulate a model systems' normal genetic state through genome engineering (i.e., the precise manipulation and mutagenesis of endogenous genetic material), or transgenesis (i.e., the addition of one or more exogenous genes). Baylor College of Medicine has been at the forefront of the development of genome-engineered and transgenic disease models, including cellular, as well as mice and fruit fly animal models. Faculty members of the CPSB program apply genetic engineering to generate models tailored to address pressing questions across biomedical interests, aided by the Genetically Engineered Rodent Models Core (GERM Core).
