RNA Interference: from Serendipity to Application to Functional Genomics

King-Song Jeng

(Associate Specialist, Institute of Molecular Biology/

Manager of National RNAi Core Facility)

This accidental discovery resulted in the discovery of the world's first antibiotic or bacteria killer. The discovery of RNA interference (RNAi), a form of post-transcriptional gene silencing that mimics the effect of loss-of-gene-function, also is a scientific serendipity, which involves several intriguing, quirky and surprising events.
