Tools & Techniques: Cost-Effective Vector-Based shRNA Expression, Conditional RNAi in Zebrafish, and More | GenomeWeb

A team of researchers from the Beijing Institute of Radiation Medicine has published details about a new vector-based shRNA expression system for RNAi that promises to be more cost effective than other approaches

According to the report, which appeared in PLOS One, existing vector-based shRNA-expression strategies, while capable of inducing RNAi in viable cells, tend to be either “error prone or cost prohibitive.”
