Nobel Prize for Medicine: RNA Interference – Open Access to Papers and Animation

The journal Nature is providing open access to a ‘web focus’ on RNA Interference (click here): 

Cells utilize RNA interference (RNAi) to regulate protein expression in many contexts. The discovery of RNAi has transformed our understanding of gene regulation as well as our ability to manipulate it. Gathered here is a selection of research and comment on RNAi published in the pages of Nature, including groundbreaking research from today’s issue. This focus also brings together news and reviews from across the Nature Publishing Group, and a fantastic animation offers the chance to view the RNAi process in action.

See “RNA Interference: Open Access to Nobel Prize Winners Original Paper” for links to the homepages of Andrew Fire and Craig Mello and their original paper “Potent and specific genetic interference by double-stranded RNA in Caenorhabditis elegans (C. Elegans)“.
