Z02 - The trp zoo: a combinatorial genetic approach to visualize and manipulate TRP-expressing cells
The platform project
(i) serves as a repository of mouse lines,
(ii) will generate conditional TRP-deficient mouse strains (so far half of the TRP-deficient lines are global knock-outs only),
(iii) will provide mouse lines allowing to visualize and manipulate TRP-expressing cells and
(iv) will support analysis of distribution and preparative FACS of specific TRP-expressing cell populations. Individual CRC projects wishing to pursue these techniques or generate and analyze mice take advantage of Z02, e.g. via “short scientific missions”.
