Mammalian genome sequencing has identified numerous genes requiring functional annotation. The discovery that dsRNA can direct gene-specific silencing in both model organisms and mammalian cells through RNA interference (RNAi) has provided a platform for dissecting the function of independent genes. The generation of large-scale RNAi libraries targeting all predicted genes within mouse, rat and human cells, combined with the large number of cell-based assays, provides a unique opportunity to… CONTINUE READING
