Ordering Information

Please note our new ordering instructions 

Placing an Order

STEP 1: Locate clone information 

Lentiviral clones

Go to the Dharmacon website (http://dharmacon.gelifesciences.com/rnai-and-custom-rna-synthesis/shrna/) and use the search option at the top of the page to search for your gene of interest. In the search results, click on the “shRNA” link. Then choose the type of shRNA required (i.e., TRC or pGIPZ lentiviral, human or mouse), which will give you a list of available clones.  Request the desired clone(s) by entering the Clone ID in the RNAi Core ordering form.

STEP 2: Complete the online order form
