RNA interference methods highlighted in Cold Spring Harbor Protocols

Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y., Tues., Aug. 1, 2006 The current issue of Cold Spring Harbor Protocols, published online today, features new, freely available methods for using RNA interference (RNAi) in mice and Drosophila. RNAi is a technique that allows researchers to specifically block the action of individual genes without affecting the expression of others. These protocols--contributed by leading scientists in the RNAi field--will be useful to many researchers seeking to identify the biological functions of genes in important biological model systems.

Among the more than 50 new methods published today are protocols for handling embryonic stem cells, visualizing events leading to programmed cell death, and preparing cells and proteins for microscopic imaging. The latest issue adds greater depth to the substantial archive of protocols that has been available since the launch of this new scientific resource in May of 2006.
