In reply to the request for companies making knockout mice, GenPharm has
never done knockouts as a commercial venture, but we did do a lot of
knockouts, some of which were very satisfying research collaborations. Alas,
as of the end of February, the excellent (if I do say so myself) capabilities
of GenPharm to do knockout and transgenic work have been "knocked out". All
of the scientists and staff working in that area were laid off in February,
and have now had to find new jobs. I can suggest two possibilities: Tom
Doetschman's lab at Cincinnati (Tom- sorry for my inability to spell), and a
new venture, called Lexicon Genetics, that is located near Houston, Texas.
I'd personally prefer the latter, because it has an association with Allan
Bradley, my scientific advisor and knockout guru when I was at GenPharm.
Sorry I don't have any phone numbers with me.
Disclaimers: 1. I don't work for Lexicon or Doetschman.
2. GenPharm's or other's attorneys take note- you won't find anything of
