The Einstein shRNA Core Facility offers reagents and services that enable gene-modulation studies to be carried out at scales ranging from individual-gene to genome-wide. We provide RNAi and ORF reagents; shRNA-, CRISPR- and ORF-based screening services; and gene-modulation advice and expertise to researchers at:
Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore Medical Center, and Yeshiva University
In addition, we offer services to members of the New York Structural Biology Center Consortium:
Columbia University; New York University; Mt. Sinai School of Medicine; Rockefeller University; Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center; State University of New York; City University of New York; Weill Cornell Medical Center; and Wadsworth Center, New York State Department of Health
We are affiliated with the Albert Einstein Cancer Center.
The Dean's Office is currently subsidizing 20% of the cost for Einstein investigators of obtaining shRNA- or ORF-expressing lentivirus, either as viral supernatant or concentrated viral stock, generating stable shRNA-expressing cell lines, and performing genomics screens using custom arrayed libraries.
