RNAi Resource Center

RNAi Resource Center

The RNAi Resource Center, hosted by the Department of Biology at Drexel Univeristy provides HUMAN shRNA from the Open Biosystems Human Expression Arrest©™ shRNA library. We bring you the freedom and use of RNAi technologies at a HUGE discount. Here, you can easily order any construct from the entire Human Expression Arrest©™ shRNA library. As well as supplying the reagents, we are here to help facilitate the implementation of RNAi within your lab. Feel free to learn more about RNAi technology in Resources section seen in the top navigation.

The RNAi resource center gets a face lift! New website, new search engine!

The Drexel University RNAi Resource Center's free introductory 3 year period was a great success. With the help of the Drexel University GRID award and the Commonwealth of PA Department of Health Formula Tobacco Award, we were able to supply over 2,000 constructs to the Drexel Community at NO COST to any investigator. To continue providing this service as well as developing improvements, we are now implementing a small $20 charge for each construct. We look forward to continuing to support all your RNAi research goals.
