Online Training

Viral Vectors

Target Audience: Open to the public and UC researchers who plan to work with viral vectors

Research Office: Biosafety

Before an IBC Protocol can be approved, PIs and authorized personnel must be up-to-date with all applicable training.

The use of viruses as vectors for genetic material delivery into cells has become very common among the molecular biology community. As such, it is important for users to understand the origins of these tools and potential safety implications of their use.

This training is for individuals assigned to projects involving viral vectors. This module consists of different training modules which need to be completed according to the type of vector handled in the lab. Note: all of the below trainings require using either Internet Explorer or Firefox.

  1. Module 1: Risk Assessement     Needs to be completed by all   Go to Training

  2. Module 2: Lentiviral Vectors   Go to Training

  3. Module 3: Gamma-Retroviral Vectors   Go to Training

  4. Module 4: Adenoviral Vectors   Go to Training

  5. Module 5: Adeno-Associated Viral (AAV) Vectors   Go to Training
