The article presents studies on regarding the genetic interactions of mammalian cells. It states that the researchers Jonathan Weissman and Nevan Krogan used different RNAi strategies for pair-wise gene knockdown to map the genetic interactions. It adds that M. C. Bassik and colleagues developed a pooling approach to find genes that affects the response of human cells to the toxin ricin.

    We show that convergent transcription induces transcriptional gene silencing (TGS) in trans for both fission yeast and mammalian cells. This method has advantages over existing strategies to induce gene silencing. Previous studies in fission yeast have characterized TGS as a cis-specific process...

    Small double-stranded RNAs (dsRNAs) of approximately 21-nucleotides in size, referred to as small interfering RNA (siRNA) duplexes, can induce sequence-specific posttranscriptional gene silencing, or RNA interference (RNAi). Since chemically synthesized siRNA duplexes were found to induce RNAi...
