Sigma Life Science, Jackson Lab partner on genetically engineered mice
December 2010

ST. LOUIS—Sigma Life Science, the biological products and services business of Sigma-Aldrich, and the Jackson Laboratory, a not-for-profit genetics research institution and repository for genetically engineered mice, recently announced a joint agreement allowing Jackson Lab to distribute mouse models created using Sigma Life Science's proprietary Zinc Finger Nuclease technology. The agreement aims to enable customers to focus more time and resources on their research, avoiding the burden of maintaining mouse colonies for the wider scientific community, while still fulfilling government funding obligations.

The agreement also seeks to "to enable researchers to develop precise mouse models without the need of embryonic stem cells, and to advance the understanding of human disease and improve the human condition," says Dr. Michael V. Wiles, senior director of Jackson Lab's technology evaluation and development department.
