MicroRNAs Intimately Involved in Cancer
HHMI investigators have established that tiny RNAs provide a novel genetic route to the initiation of some forms of cancer.
Genetic Tool Reaps Rich Harvest
In one fell swoop, scientists have increased from dozens to hundreds the number of known genes that control crucial steps in the development of many organisms from fruit flies to humans.
New RNA Libraries Can Inactivate Human Genes Selectively
Researchers have generated large RNA libraries that can be used to turn off individual human and mouse genes to study their function.
Researchers Adapt RNAi to Study Gene Function on a Large Scale
HHMI researchers characterized the role in growth and viability of nearly all the genes in the genome of the fruit fly.
