View Resource Silencing Genomes

While we may have complete genome sequences for humans and some animals, scientists are now entering the "post genome" era. The challenges of this era include determining the physiological functions of the thousands of new genes "for which little is known beyond their sequences." The use of RNAi, along with bioinformatics, can provide scientists with the tools to determine these functions in...
