It is a centralized facility available to all WSU researchers and students. The FMIC provides electron microscopy and light microscopy equipment for observation and analysis of a diverse array of specimens.Animal Production Core (APC)The APC offers a range of services for generating and preserving genetically modified animal models for investigators at WSU and beyond. Embryo microinjection and micromanipulation are available for production of transgenic, knock-out, knock-in, and gene-edited animals, with full-service model generation provided in collaboration with the Gene Editing Reagent Core (GERC). The APC also provides an array of other services to support animal research, including embryo and sperm cryopreservation and cryorecovery, rederivation of specific-pathogen-free lines, in vitro fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), and other reproductive biology techniques and surgeries.Gene Editing Reagent Core (GERC)The GERC provides a suite of services for investigators to implement cutting edge genome editing in their research programs, from developing reagents for investigators to use in their labs to implementing genome editing to produce new animal models in collaboration with the Animal Production Core (APC). We also manage the CRB’s single cell library service using the 10x Genomics Chromium Controller and reagents.Social and Economic Sciences Research Center (SESRC)The SESRC at WSU provides public opinion survey research and other research support services to a wide variety of academic, government groups and organizations.

But we often work on other organisms as well, such as studying cancer development and inflammation processes in mammalian systems, investigating the interaction between major insect pests and the microbes that infect them or that they vector to other eukaryotes, determining how marine microbes produce novel bioactive compounds, and gaining an understanding of how single-celled algae regulate metabolism such that we can use that information to design changes in bioenergy and bioproduct development efforts.Laboratory for Cellular Metabolism and Engineering (LCME) AnalyticsOur lab has long worked in the area of plant biochemistry/metabolism, with a major focus on plant specialized metabolism, as plants are ideal systems to work with to understand single-cell processes.
