MSU TGEF Current Recharge Rates

Listed rates are for complete projects only, except where individual services are listed.  Complete projects include all steps from design to cloning of targeting vector, to validation of the final genome edited founder or clonal cell line.  In addition, we accommodate projects where constructs or molecular reagents are provided by the investigator, at lower rates. Please contact our staff directly if you need a breakdown of the rates or more details for a proposed budget.
Note: Listed rates are for internal MSU users,  rates for External User projects will be marked up 120% over cost information listed.
