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
The title of this webinar is: "RNA
interference: What’s all the noise with gene
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.
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.
