- Approved animal protocol in place
- DNA or RNA prepared using protocols provided by Core
- Plan in place for screening ES cells (for KO)
- Assigned animal space as destination for mice
- Plan in place for screening pups
- Trained personnel to breed mice, cut tails, and screen DNA
- UC San Diego index number or an off-campus purchase order
- UC San Diego Transgenic Core Request For Services
