Directory Category: Core

High-Throughput siRNA Screening Facility performs large-scale siRNA and miRNA screens for UAB researchers. The facility has a genome-wide human Silencer Select siRNA library, as well as genome-wide human miRNA mimics and miRNA inhibitors libraries (Life Technologies). Services provided by the facility include: assay optimization and validation, high-throughput screening of siRNAs and miRNA mimics/inhibitors in a variety of human cell lines, basic data analyses/hit selection, and support for follow-up validation assays. High-throughput drug screening is also available with the drug libraries provided by the researcher. In addition, UAB researchers can purchase Silencer Select siRNAs and miRNA mimics/inhibitors (Life Technologies) through the facility at discounted prices.
