CGSC Strain Modification Services

The CGSC is happy to announce that we are now offering a new service for our users. We realize that many of our customers may not have the time, equipment, or expertise to genetically modify their own strains. We therefore have decided to offer some strain modification and construction services. We will offer a set of standard services at the prices listed below, and as we increase capacity, we intend to roll out additional services. If you are interested in a service that is not yet listed, please contact us and we will let you know if we can help you.

Below is a list of the standard services we are currently offering:

Service Academic/Non-profit
Moving a plasmid into a new host strain $50 $100
Removing the kanamycin cassette from a Keio knockout strain $150 $300
Constructing a Keio double knockout strain $300 $600
Constructing a Keio triple knockout strain $600 $1,200

These charges are in addition to the standard fees charged for strain distribution.
