Center for Genome Engineering Logo Center for Genome Engineering


The Center for Genome Engineering is committed to developing and disseminating the tools that enable efficient, responsible genome engineering. At the heart of CGE's technology are transposable elements - segments of DNA capable of changing their chromosomal position or moving from one DNA molecule to another. Faculty members at the Center for Genome Engineering have deposited plasmids at Addgene for distribution to academic and nonprofit laboratories to promote research and educational purposes. Please visit their website ( www.cge.umn.edu ) for more information!

Nikunj Somia, Nicola Philpott, Anindya Bagchi, Xianzheng Zhou, Reuben Harris, Scott Fahrenkrug, R. Scott McIvor, David Largaespada

Golden Gate TALEN Kit

The Voytas lab has published (Cermak et al., 2011) a set of reagents that can be used to assemble TALEN plasmids. TALENs are fusion proteins made up of TAL effector repeat domains fused to the Fokl nuclease.

The Golden Gate TALEN kit allows for customized assembly of TALEN constructs.
