Functional Genomics Screens using shRNA Libraries

Using shRNA libraries provided by Dr. Jason Moffat, we have identified several tumor suppressors for prostate cancer using 3D based functional genomics screens of BPH cells.  We now apply these screens to identify regulators of androgen signalling in prostate cancer cells as well as dormancy breaking genes.
