We are not a core facility but rather produce viruses in collaborative mode depending on bandwidth and funds available. If this works for your projects please contact the PI, Viviana Gradinaru, at email@example.com to discuss.
To request published reagents which are not on Addgene, please fill out this form for the plasmid(s) or virus(es) you are requesting.
If requesting AAV-PHP rep-cap virus, note that an MTA for AAV9 from U Penn Vector core is required. This must be signed by both U Penn and your institution and sent by electronic copy to Caltech's Technology Transfer office (firstname.lastname@example.org) before Caltech will issue an MTA.
The UPenn MTA form may be found at: https://clover.caltech.edu/documents/17-mta-pennwilson-omnibus_academic_v3f.pdf Please initiate this as soon as possible.
