What We Do

The Janelia Virus Service Facility specializes in custom virus production for the manipulation and mapping of neuronal circuits. We aim to fulfill all the viral tool needs for Janelia investigators, from viral construct design, coordinating vector construction with the Molecular Biology Facility, to experiment trouble-shooting and investigator specific needs. We offer routine production of adeno-associated, rabies, and lenti viruses. Other viral vectors can be produced on an as-needed basis. The Virus Service is actively working to improve existing and create new viral tools.
