Our current major focus is in providing RNAi / shRNA reagnets for silencing genes-of-interest in human and mouse cell systems. We carry a library of over 200,000 GIPZ lentiviral plasmids for gene knockown that spans the whole genome.

We also carry robotic-based yeast manipulation for genome-wide experiments, (eg. SGA - synthetic gene array analysis).

We are in the process of acquiring a Pacbio Sequel for whole genome sequencing. In the near future, we will be constructing pooled shRNA gene-knockdown cell line libraries.
