Facility Details

The Genetic Technologies Core provides a range of services related to the manipulation and delivery of nucleic acids to biological systems. Services include, but are not limited to:

Production and titering of recombinant viral vectors, including- Lentiviruses, Adenoviruses, and Adeno-associated viruses


Tagging of open reading frames

Development of plasmids and/or RNAs for CRISPR/Cas manipulation

piggyBac transposon delivery systems

Real-time PCR analysis


In vitro transcription

The Core maintains an extensive stock of plasmids that provide components for building constructs envisioned by the investigator and provides consultative services to devise an efficient plan for their realization.

The Core also provides training opportunities in the technologies described above, either as a for-credit, one semester class or on a project-related, fee-based basis.
