AAV GCaMP6 VECTORS

The vectors listed below have been added to our online catalog and can be ordered by completing an Inventory Request Form available on our Order Information page. Most AAV1 based vectors are currently available for distribution, while AAV5 and AAV9 based vectors can be pre-ordered and will be provided once available.

Please note: The Genetically-Encoded Neuronal Indicator and Effector (GENIE) Project and the Janelia Farm Research Campus of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute have generously allowed these materials to be distributed with the understanding that requesting investigators need to acknowledge the GENIE Program and the Janelia Farm Research Campus  in any publication in which the material was used, specifically Vivek Jayaraman, Ph.D., Rex A. Kerr, Ph.D., Douglas S. Kim, Ph.D., Loren L. Looger, Ph.D., Karel Svoboda, Ph.D. from the GENIE Project, Janelia Farm Research Campus, Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

AAV Optogenetic Vectors

The Core is working on making all of the optogenetic vectors listed on the What's New flyer available soon. The vectors currently available are designated with a ‘Y’ in the column under the AAV serotype indicated. We are also planning to make selected vectors available as a Serotype Selection Kit which will contain all the serotypes available for pilot studies to best determine the serotype of choice for a particular application.

Please note: Karl Deisseroth, M.D., Ph.D. and Stanford University have generously provided these materials for distribution to the research community and should be acknowledged in any publication resulting from the use of the material. In addition, laboratories receiving the materials listed below must hold an MTA with Stanford for the original source materials (plasmid DNA) used to generate the vectors. MTAs may be obtained directly from the Deisseroth lab at Stanford (please visit http://www.stanford.edu/group/dlab/optogenetics/request_dna.html for more information) or obtained through the Addgene website (www.addgene.org) for which there will be a $65 administrative fee per plasmid.
