Human Genomic siRNA oligo Libraries at the HTBC
Please contact David Solow-Cordero for a consultation about performing a genomic RNAi knockdown screen. After the consultation, you can fill out the application with the information we will need to commence your screen.
We have the siARRAY whole human genome siRNA library from Dharmacon; press release). Stanford is also a member of RNAiglobal . The set consists of pools of 4 oligos per gene. In addition, we have the full genomic upgrade, consisting of each individual siRNA duplex (4 per gene). The set is divided into GPCR (517 genes), Kinase (779), Druggable genome (6022), and the remaining genome (13,804) for a total of 21,122 targeted genes.
We have recently acquired a few copies of the Qiagen Mouse Whole Genome siRNA set V1 against 22,124 gene targets. It is available as pooled aliquots (~4 siRNA per gene target) in 72 X 384 well plates, 33 uL/well of 500 nMolar siRNA.
Please contact David E. Solow-Cordero, Ph.D. if you would like more information on screening with the siRNA libraries.
