Quantum Dots Enable Quick Screening of siRNA

Abstract:
Rumiana Bakalova, Ph.D., and her colleagues used quantum dots and a technique known as fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) to assess the efficiency with which previously studied siRNAs bound to their target mRNAs and correlated that data with existing biological data for those siRNAs.
