RNAi Methodology and Databases

RNA interference (RNAi) is a way to block the production of any gene product. To produce this effect, all you have to do is to introduce double-stranded RNA that is complementary in sequence to your targted gene. RNAi was developed first in the worm C. elegans and there are many good web sites where you can learn more about the metod and what has been learned using RNAi.
