RNA Interference (RNAi)

Share this animation:

RNA Interference (RNAi) is a method of regulating gene expression by inhibiting the translation of messenger RNA, primarily by miRNA and siRNA molecules. This biological process is important for resisting certain viral infections, as well as regulating the production of proteins.

I was impressed by the ability of the XVIVO team to transform all the structural information and the very detailed sequence of molecular events that I assembled in a story-board into a visually pleasing work of art.
