Sigma Offers Another Format of the RNAi Consortium shRNA Libraries
News Oct 07, 2005
Sigma, a division of Sigma-Aldrich Corporation, through an exclusive agreement with The RNAi Consortium (TRC), has announced the expansion of the MISSION TRC shRNA library product lines to include lentiviral transduction particles in addition to the previously released purified plasmid DNA and frozen bacterial glycerol stock format.
According to Sigma, they are the first to market comprehensive lentiviral shRNA clone libraries in this format, allowing researchers to quickly and efficiently knockdown gene expression in primary, dividing, and non-dividing cells.
This format of the shRNA clones, which target human and mouse genes for RNAi- mediated gene silencing, designed for a faster, broader and reliable shRNA delivery.
The American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG), along with several co-signing organizations, issued a position statement today outlining whether, and to what extent, there is a responsibility to recontact genetic and genomic research participants when new findings emerge that suggest their genetic information should be interpreted differently, which would allow participants to benefit from current genomics advances.READ MORE
