Mechanisms as well as effects of RNA interference on gene expression.
In this module we will deliberate the mechanisms and effects of RNA interference on gene expression as well as explore techniques for studying RNA interference.
Finally this module, you will can
•differentiate between siRNA and miRNA
•define the mechanisms of RNAi
•define methods used to study miRNA expression
•define potential applications of RNAi research
Spend some time glancing through or entering searches on miRBase, a website which upholds a database of miRNA sequences as well as targets.
Plan a simple experiment you might perform in your own research utilizing a piece of information you gotten from this website.
