Over the past several years, RNA interference (RNAi) has emerged as a powerful genetic tool that is being exploited not only in fundamental research for the assessment of gene functions, but also in various fields of applied research in medicine and agriculture. In plants, RNAi strategies have the...

Western corn rootworm (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera LeConte) and northern corn rootworm (Diabrotica barberi (Smith and Lawrence)) are major pests of maize in the USA. These pests have been managed with a variety of tactics over the last century. Both Diabrotica spp. have adapted to crop rotation...

RNA interference (RNAi) technology is a gene-silencing tool with high specificity and efficiency for gene function studies. The use of RNAi libraries, which is based on this technology, promotes the significance of RNAi in gene silencing, and furthermore it provides a basis for the large-scale gene ...

RNA interference (RNAi) is a powerful tool to down-regulate single genes or sets of genes in a sequence-specific manner. Since its discovery in the 1990s, an impressive amount of research has revealed many of the key steps and players that produce the small RNA species at the centre of the...
