Scientists Publish Results on Sigma-Aldrich's shRNA Library in Cell
News Apr 13, 2006
The publication reported the creation of a lentiviral shRNA library to knock down genes for genome-wide screening.
The library, now commercially available as Sigma-Aldrich's lentiviral MISSION™ shRNA library, targets 19,000 human and mouse genes and offers a new resource for somatic cell genetics providing new insights in loss-of- function screens in mammalian cells.
It will facilitate comprehensive screening efforts and will be useful in enabling arrayed screens that focus on mouse or human primary cells.
Evolution Does Repeat Itself After AllNews
A team of University of Konstanz biologists led by Professor Axel Meyer shows that evolutionary outcomes can be predicted: In a new publication in the journal “Evolution Letters”, they are able to identify some of the factors that contribute to recurrent patterns of diversity and similarity in cichlids.
