About – Tailored Genes


Tailored Genes was founded in 2014. Our goal was to provide researchers with customized products and services in lentivirus and adeno-associated virus vectors, stable cell lines, and other genetics applications, at a cost-effective price. We have continued to do just that.

Our founder, Dr. Chetan Tailor, has over 25 years of experience in molecular biology and in cell culture having specialized in retrovirus/lentivirus vectors. Because of his expertise, and the excellent team we’ve amassed, Tailored Genes is now a leading provider of LV vectors and soon to be AAV vectors.
