RNA interference

Nature is doing a free web focus on RNAi (the use of short RNA molecules that silence mRNA and, hence, gene expression). This technique has been celebrated for the last year as the “instant knockout,” “the new molecular medicine,” and with even more outrageous promises than that. Still, the rise of RNAi in just a few years to becoming such a dominant technique is interesting.

The free web focus includes many different Nature articles from the past year on RNAi, including some review articles.
