Applications of RNA interference, San Diego, CA, USA
Event Feb 10
Since RNAi-based gene silencing was described in worms, research indicates that double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) results in the sequence-specific gene silencing effect that is common to all eukaryotes. These observations are generating enormous interest in the application of RNA interference as a tool to control the expression of specific and multiple genes. Predictions suggest that application of this natural regulatory mechanism will result in a knowledge explosion in cell biology, functional genomics and gene-based therapeutics. The purpose of this conference is to review the utility of RNA interference especially with reference to functional genomics and drug discovery. The aim is to provide a broad overview of emerging methodologies and their industrial utility. The latest advances on RNA interference gene control, knockdown strategies and target validation will be presented.
