Over at Principles of Molecular Virology: RNAi – miRNA – siRNA – do you know the difference?

Principles of Molecular Virology, Chapter 6, discusses RNA interference and virus infection.


RNA Interference RNA interference (RNAi) is an important set of pathways that are used to regulate gene expression. RNAi is a blanket term which can refer to both small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) and microRNAs (miRNAs). There are important differences between siRNAs and miRNAs but I’ll get to those later…
