Promega @cademy webinar:
"RNA interference: What’s all the noise with gene silencing?"


The Promega @cademy provides a tailored programme of non-commercial live webinars, covering a wide range of scientific topics, from very basic concepts to highly technical research presentations.
The title of this webinar is: "RNA interference: What’s all the noise with gene silencing?"

Basic WebinarsThis is a Basic webinar, these webinars address the basics of specific topics and technologies, such as genetic reporters or apoptosis. They are especially useful for students, technicians and junior scientists in general.




RNA interference (RNAi) is a natural process by which gene expression can be silenced by sequence-specific degradation of RNAs.

The focus of this webinar is to present basic information on RNAi, its mechanism and how it can be used to address gene function in mammalian cell systems. Special attention will be given to RNAi sequence design and optimization, as well as RNAi effect monitoring and confirmation, which are two critical steps when studying gene function with RNAi-based technologies.
