RNAi Roundup

Premium

This summer, 151 scientists took the time to respond to our RNAi survey and give us a glimpse into the field. The vast majority of respondents say that they’re self-taught, having picked up the technique by reading journal papers. Far more of them are using siRNAs to induce RNAi, but a good number say they’ve at least tried hairpin DNAs. Below, you’ll find results from the survey indicating their experience with RNAi and vendors, as well as what they see as the main hurdles the technology must overcome.
