What controls should be included as part of a well-run lentiviral vector-based gene knockdown experiment?

We suggest that both positive and negative controls (for example SMARTvector GAPD and Non-targeting Control Particles, respectively) and untreated cells should be included in each gene silencing experiment to ensure the accurate assessment of transduction efficiency, target gene knockdown and cellular viability following transduction.
