Advanced Gene Manipulations (AGM™)

WuXi Biology Advanced Gene Manipulation (AGM™) technology and platform provide comprehensive solutions to our clients for their gene manipulations of knock-down, knock-out, knock-in and over-expression. This is done in order to understand the gene of interest, its functional impact and mechanism of action. Various types of genetic manipulation including AAVs-based vectors, proprietary genome editing, and transgenic technology offer cell and animal models. These models are region specific, tissue specific and cell type specific as they support target discovery and target engagement for diseases and the impact of drug treatment.

Integration of AGM™ with in vitro, in vivo pharmacology, biomarkers, and bioinformatics has enabled us to become a leader in the services around target discovery, validation, translational sciences and lead discoveries. We offer:

• Innovative technologies and know-how
• Comprehensive options from cellular, tissue, and in vivo studies
• One of the world’s leading CRISPR library screening platform
• Comprehensive platforms and service types in target validation and target identification
• Well-established efficacy evaluation platform for rare diseases
