RNAi Screening Core

RNAi Screening

Our goal is to facilitate high-throughput genome-wide RNAi screens in fly, mouse and human cell culture assays.  Through our facility, we provide technical support in the planning, execution and analysis of RNAi screens.  We also provide users access to RNAi libraries and automated infrastructure, such as liquid handlers and plate readers.


RNAi screens are potent tools for the identification of novel components of cellular pathways.


Go to  the RNAi Screening Core website to download a brief guide that outlines common themes in the design, execution and evaluation of RNAi screens.
