Screening Libraries

shRNA screening

The HTS Facility maintains and distributes clones and pools of plasmid or replication-incompetent lentivirus particles from the human and mouse pGIPZ library. For more information about the libraries refer to the GE Healthcare website

An online searchable database and ordering system called the RNAi Storefront at has been established to facilitate purchase of individual clones, pooled plasmid library sets, gene family sub-library pools, pre-packaged lentivirus pools, and various controls. Browsing is unrestricted, however, you will be prompted for your HutchNet ID and password to submit an order. Please contact with access or content issues. Please note that access to the shRNA collections is limited to Fred Hutch labs only.
