Cosuppression in C. elegans Protocol Cosuppression is a process in Caenorhabditis elegans that closely resembles RNAi. In contrast to RNAi, however, the cosuppression effect in C. elegans does not spread throughout the animal. Cosuppression in C. elegans can be triggered by highly repetitive transgenes that contain gene constructs.
Introduction of Double-Stranded RNA in C. elegans by Feeding Protocol Protocol describes an easily scalable way of introducing double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) in Caenorhabditis elegans: feeding the nematode with bacteria that express dsRNA. When using an Rnase-III-negative Escherichia coli strain (HT115), the efficiency of this method is comparable to the alternative.
RNAi Screens in C. elegans Protocol Protocol for RNAi screens in C. elegans in a 96-well liquid format and their application to the systematic identification of genetic interactions. The procedure allows thousands of RNAi feeding experiments to be performed per investigator per day.
