Description

RNA interference (RNAi) is a process in which small pieces of silencing RNA (siRNA) bind to cellular RNA, thereby shutting down the production of the encoded protein. Lourdes discusses how understanding hydrogen bonding and bond strengths is essential to her research on RNAi, and how scientists hope to apply RNAi technology in designing treatments for a wide variety of diseases.Search
