Texas A&M Institute for Genomic Medicine (TIGM) facilitates breakthroughs in science and medicine and accelerate the pace of medical discoveries through internal research and by providing our resources, training and services to the scientific community at Texas A&M, The State of Texas, and the world.
The Texas A&M Institute for Genomic Medicine (TIGM) is an essential resource for any researcher looking to obtain knockout mice and embryonic stem (ES) cells quickly and with favorable intellectual property (IP) terms. Our resources include the world’s largest gene trap library of ES cells in the C57BL/6N mouse strain and access to the largest library of ES cells in the 129/SvEvBrd mouse strain. TIGM provides both ES cell clones and mice to the public and private international research community.
Since 2006, TIGM has served as a major resource to the international scientific community. TIGM has delivered more than 610 mouse and ES cells orders to more than 290 academic and commercial institutions in over 26 countries. Overall, more than 5,200 individual gene trapped ES cell clones have been expanded at TIGM; more than 3,700 of those were provided to external researchers. In addition, a total of over 7,500 individual investigators from more than 900 academic and research institutions and commercial entities representing 40 countries, have queried TIGM with information requests.
