RNAi Screens and the Reagents That Enable Them

from Genetic Engineering News 2013 (Vol. 33, No. 19) by Jeanene Swanson RNAi screens for functional genomics typically look for loss- or gain-of-function phenotypes. They currently have many applications, including target discovery and validation, lead identification and optimization, mechanism of action discovery, predictive toxicology, and biomarker identification. While reagents are gaining ground, technical difficulties remain in how best to perform ...

What are lncRNAs?


from It was traditionally thought that the transcriptome would be mostly comprised of mRNAs, however advances in high-throughput RNA sequencing technologies have revealed the complexity of our genome. Non-coding RNA is now known to make up the majority of transcribed RNAs and in addition to those that carry out well-known housekeeping functions (e.g. tRNA, rRNA etc), many different types ...

LncRNA Expression Microarray Platform: Gencode v15

We have created a custom lncRNA expression array design (gencode.v15.lncrna.2probe.version1) with probes targeting the Gencode v15 human lncRNA annotation. The design file is for the standard Agilent 8x60k expression array format, with two 60mer probes targeting each of 22,001 lncRNA transcripts. The array also contains 17,535 catalogue probes targeting protein-coding genes. Similar arrays designed against an earlier version of Gencode ...
