Prosser, Haydn

I have developed a resource of micro RNA knockouts in murine embryonic stem cells which is publicly available from the repositories EuMMCR at Munich, and MMRRC at UC Davis USA.

I am also involved in chromosomal engineering; having developed methods for site specific transgenesis I am currently applying similar techniques to humanize mouse genetic loci.
