What We Do

The Primary and iPS Cell Culture Team provides expertise in the creation of primary cells and the maintenance and differentiation of iPSCs.  Primary cells are created from tissues collected from a variety of organisms, including drosophila, rodent, and fish.  Work with iPSCs is focused on maintaining and differentiation into many cell types, including neurons, cardiomyocytes, and hepatocytes.  This shared resource works closely with Molecular Genomics to transfect constructs and edit the genome of primary and iPS cells.
