Workshop on Cryopreservation of Mouse Germplasm
June 18 - 21, 2012

The cryopreservation course is offered to teach methods in cryopreservation for research strains of mice. Several methods of cryopreservation are now available and because no single method is adequate for all the various strains of mice being developed, a variety of methods are taught. The course is designed primarily as a "hands-on" laboratory program in which participants will learn techniques for the cryopreservation of cleavage-stage embryos, spermatozoa and ovaries.
In addition, general principles of cryobiology, development of inventory databases for individual programs and adaptation of long-term storage systems and cryogenic equipment for different situations will be discussed. Please note: the new sperm cryopreservation procedure recently announced by The Jackson Laboratory will be taught in this workshop.
