Default Gene knockdown competition



$10,000 Prize for siRNA Versus Morpholino Comparison

The recently completed Human Genome Project uncovered many thousands of
new genes. To understand the functions of those new genes researchers
are increasingly turning to sophisticated new tools designed to
specifically knock down the activity of any selected gene. However,
many of the tools being used for these gene knockdown studies suffer
from serious flaws which obscure and befuddle the experimental results.

On the premise that it is important for scientists to have rigorous
comparisons of both the merits and the flaws of the tools available for
gene knockdown, GENE TOOLS is sponsoring a competition to directly
compare key properties of two leading gene knockdown types: siRNAs and
Morpholinos. This competition is open to all individuals and groups
worldwide. Phase 1 research proposals are due 1 March 2005. There will
be 5 Phase 1 winners, and then a $10,000 grand prize awarded to the
Phase 2 winner.

Details of the competition are at: [Only registered users see links. ]
