Item description for RNA Interference (Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology) (Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology) by Patrick J. Paddison...
In the last few years the major effect that RNAi has had in invertebrate systems like C.elegans and drosophila is beginning to take hold in mammalian systems through both single gene knockdown experiments and genome-scale screens. In the next decade, there will no doubt be both notable successes and failures as we attempt to apply this genetic tool to various biological problems for the first time in academia and industry. Through the introduction of RNAi, mammalian systems have finally gained admittance to the pantheon of model genetic systems.

Very good overview Jun 14, 2008
This is a very good overview of the RNAi field. I wouls prefer more references to the primary literature. But other than that very good, recommend for anyone just entering the field and want to get caught up to speed on the basics. Those wanting detailed descibtions of the seminal experiments should look to the journal articles directly.
