RNA interference analysis software tools and databases

Functional genomic studies by RNA interference (RNAi) are now widely used to determine gene functions in a variety of cell-based and in vivo model systems (Boutros and Ahringer, 2008). RNAi is triggered by exogenous double-stranded (ds) RNAs causing the degradation of endogenous…
