Collaborative Functional Genomics Core

Notable References

A large number of RNAi screens conducted with the participating groups have resulted in data included in publications in high-profile journals. In addition, the core's scientific leaders and center staff members have contributed numerous review articles, chapters and methods papers. It is not practical to list all of these here but we will try to help you get started.
