  2. Resource Description
    "The final price of constructing the targeting vector in the Core will depend on the number and nature of cloning steps. This is usually in the range of $3,000 - $6,000. BAC recombineering is used for construction in the majority of cases to ensure long arms of homology. If outside vendors are used for construction, vendors charges will apply. The decision whether to use outside vendors or the UPenn Core is taken jointly by the client’s lab and PGT after thorough discussion of the technical specifics and optimal timing of the project. In some cases synthesis of up to 3000 nt DNA fragments may be required. PGT has extensive experience using synthetic DNA for vector construction. PGT has extensive experience in the construction of all types of targeting vectors, including those introducing knockin mutations, reporter cassettes, stop cassettes and floxed alleles. In addition, vectors targeting tissue and/or drug-inducible transgenes to specific loci, including the Rosa 26 locus, can be constructed."
