Embryo Microinjection and Transplantation Technique for Nasonia vitripennis Genome Manipulation Ming Li1,2, Michelle Bui1,2, Omar S. Akbari1,2 1Department of Entomology and Riverside Center of Disease Vector Research, Institute for Integrative Genome Biology, University of California, Riverside, 2Section of Cell and Developmental Biology, Division of Biological Sciences, University of California, San Diego Microinjection of Nasonia vitripennis embryos is an essential method for generating heritable genome modifications. Described here is a detailed procedure for microinjection and transplantation of Nasonia vitripennis embryos, which will greatly facilitate future genome manipulation in this organism.
