-- RNAi screens using siRNA libraries
-- Inducing siRNAs in vivo from a plasmid or other vector in cells
-- Delivering synthetic siRNAs into cells
-- Digesting long dsRNA in vivo using dicer or other enzymes
-- Expressing siRNA in vitro for delivery into cells
-- Using PCR mediated siRNA expression cassettes to generate siRNAs
-- Delivering siRNAs into cells by transfection
-- Delivering siRNAs into cells by electroporation
-- Delivering siRNAs into cells by viral infection
-- Using a reporter systems to track gene knockdown
RNA interference (RNAi) is rapidly emerging as an integral tool for investigating the physiological function of genes. RNAi -based methods allow researchers to modulate, and in many cases effectively silence, expression of a gene of interest. Systems for delivering RNAs into cells for the purpose of gene silencing include standard transfection technologies as well as plasmid and viral systems for the inducible expression of siRNAs in vivo.
The Gene Silencing Dashboard shows Applied Biosystems (NASDAQ:ABI), primarily with its Ambion products, and Invitrogen (NASDAQ:IVGN) to be among the top suppliers for all ten categories surveyed. Other companies recognized as leaders in specific segments include Dharmacon (NYSE:TMO), Qiagen (NASDAQ:QGENF) and Amaxa Biosystems.
This new gene silencing market report from Percepta Associates, a market research and strategic consulting firm focused on serving life science companies, was developed from responses to a 36-question survey by over 360 scientists predominantly located in North America and Europe.
"The gene silencing market is one of the most rapidly growing markets served by life science tool companies," said Scott Provost, Principal of Percepta. "However, it's an increasingly competitive market. This Dashboard report will help companies currently serving the gene silencing segments, as well as those planning entry, to quickly assess where opportunities for growth and share gain lie."
