Pronuclear Microinjection Sublicense Agreement:

Methods of pronuclear microinjection are patented under United State Patent No. 4,873,191, entitled "Genetic Transformation of Zygotes," assigned to Ohio University and licensed to Xenogen Biosciences. The State University of New York (SUNY) currently holds a Sublicense Agreement, which provides for the generation of transgenic animals for SUNY faculty, as well as for individuals at other organizations. For individuals external to the SUNY, a specific MTA form must be completed before service can be provided; please contact Christopher Roman, Ph. D., for this form.
