Ordering & Payments

What do you provide if the gene editing results in a lethal allele?

If the gene deletion is found non-homozygosable, the heterozygote is sequenced and becomes the deliverable. If you want balanced heterozygotes, please contact us to order the Balancer Cross Service.

Does allele you create bear your own allele nomenclature?

Worms we send out has strain name and allele name labelled on the agar plates. We will also send the strain name and genotype to you in the sequence summary file. PHX is our strain designation and syb is our allele designation. Both PHX and syb are confirmed by the WormBase. Please use our allele name in your publications.

Do I need to provide the plasmid when I place an order?

If you are requesting gene editing service(s), you do not need to provide the plasmid as we will make sgRNA plasmid and donor ourselves. But if your knock-in sequence is specific and we don’t have the template, please send the template plasmid to us. If you are requesting B001 and B002 service, you can either send us the plasmid or request us to construct one (C001 Service) for you.
