Although RNAi is an extremely effective gene-silencing tool in Caenorhabditis elegans, not all nematodes experience robust gene silencing with the introduction of double-stranded RNA, according to researchers from Kansas State University.

As a result, outcomes in RNAi knockdown experiments in non-Caenorhabditis nematodes “should be interpreted cautiously,” the investigators wrote in The Journal of Nematology.
