NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Open Biosystems said today that Johns Hopkins University and the University of Manitoba have purchased access to its RNAi technologies under its Open Access Program.
The University of Manitoba will use the Open Biosystems’ resources in a new gene-discovery and -validation program across the university.
The program gives all of the labs at the two facilities access to Open Biosystems’ RNAi resources, which include shRNAmir lentiviral and retroviral libraries for human and mouse genomes and the RNAi Consortium human and mouse lentiviral shRNA libraries.
The program also includes access to RNAi collections for Drosophila, C. elegans, and zebrafish.
