DECIPHER libraries are bar-coded lentiviral shRNA libraries optimized for RNAi Genetic Screens in pooled format. Human Module 2 can be used for the more comprehensive follow-up screens or simply be done in parallel. There are approximately 10,000 genes that have an Entrez/RefSeq ID and at least one interaction documented in PubMed and cover the majority of disease-associated genes and drug targets. About half of these are included in Module 1 while Module 2 covers the rest.

PLEASE NOTE: The DECIPHER shRNA are designed for target mRNA associated with the RefSeq#, not the HUGO gene symbol. We can't guarantee that the gene symbols indicated are accurate, as there may be synonyms, nomenclature updates/changes, or other discrepancies in naming that are beyond our control. Please see the HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee website at for more information.
