Finnish Genome Editing Center

Please, note that FinGEEC is closed 3.7.-1.8.2021 due to personnel holidays.



Finnish Genome Editing Center, a LSRI led by adjunct professor Topi Tervonen. FinGEEC has been endorsed new emerging technology platform status by the BF’s SAB in 2016. New services under this core are being developed, and they will include gene editing validation with SURVEYOR assays and Sanger sequencing,  stem cell editing and in vivo editing to generate gene engineered mice.

For inquiries of the present status of LSRI development, please contact the LSRI director. 

New cell line services

  • Stable cell line creation
    • Transgene overexpression 
    • shRNA-meditated knockdown
  • gRNA validation service

User fees

The research infrastructure is supported by University of Helsinki (HiLIFE and Research Programs Unit) and Biocenter Finland.
