The Einstein shRNA Core Facility is a state-of-the-art RNAi laboratory dedicated to providing researchers with access to reagents and services that enable loss-of-function studies at scales ranging from individual genes to genome scale.
We provide RNAi reagents, shRNA-based screening services, and RNAi expertise to researchers at:
Albert Einstein College of Medicine
Montefiore Medical Center
In addition, we offer services to members of the New York Structural Biology Center Consortium:
New York University
Mt. Sinai School of Medicine
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
State University of New York
City University of New York
Weill Cornell Medical Center
Wadsworth Center, New York State Department of Health
The Facility houses several genome-wide shRNA libraries, from which we provide individual shRNA clones, shRNA sets for arrayed screens, and shRNA pools for selection-based screening.
The Facility is located in the Price Center on the Einstein campus in the Bronx, and is affiliated with the Albert Einstein Cancer Center.
The shRNA Core Facility now offers High-Content Screening services on the Operetta system from PerkinElmer. The instrument is available for individual plates for an hourly charge, or as part of RNAi screening projects. Contact us at shRNA@einstein.yu.edu for details.
