The virus laboratory is located in the main building of medical campus and its functions are coordinated by Dr. Aki Manninen. All the necessary tools (e.g. viral constructs and packaging cell lines) for commonly used retroviral (MuLV), lentiviral and adenoviral approaches can be provided by the virus laboratory to allow transduction of a number of different cell lines from different species, primary cells or embryonic stem cells. Users are instructed and trained to use both basic and advanced viral methodologies including design and generation of efficient viral RNAi tools. Expert guidance allows easy entry and a jump-start for research groups considering the use of viral vectors for gene expression or silencing.
