New RNA interference technique finds seven genes for head and neck cancer

The technique, created by scientists in Rockefeller’s Laboratory of Mammalian Cell Biology and Development, attaches short pieces of RNA to highly concentrated viruses and uses ultrasound to inject the viruses into mouse embryos. It takes a fraction of the resources and much less time than using knockout mice to conduct genetic screens, and can assess about 300 genes in a single mouse in as little as five weeks. More »
