Division Signaling and Functional Genomics
We develop database and computational tools for the design and analysis of high-throughput screening experiments.
E-RNAi is a web application to design optimized RNAi reagents. It integrates genomic context information with predicted specificity and efficiency parameters.
E-RNAi can be accessed at e-rnai.org

NEXT-RNAi is a software for the design and evaluation of genome-wide RNAi libraries. It performs all steps from the prediction of specific and efficient RNAi target sites to the visualization of designed reagents in their genomic context.

GenomeRNAi is a database with phenotype information from high-throughput RNAi experiments in human (cell-based) and Drosophila (cell-based or in vivo). The GenomeRNAi website features search and browse functionalities, a “frequent hitter” page, download options, and a dynamic genome browser based on a DAS server. It is well integrated with external resources. The website also provides details on RNAi reagents and associated mapping information, as well as assessments with regard to their specificity and efficiency. Direct submissions by data producers are welcome!
