Traditionally, transgenic mice are generated by pronuclear injection of exogenous DNA. This technique has several limitations, including limited control over transgene expression, transgene cytotoxicity, -promiscuity and silencing, and founder mouse sterility. Here we describe two protocols to generate transgenic mice from ES cell clones carrying stably integrated exogenous DNA with inducible transgene expression.
