      Follow up to the RNAi presentation at the Las Vegas group.  More and more information and uses of RNAi are presented in this easy to understand video from NOVA science now.  Comments? IMO aging itself may be subject to slowing, stopping, or even reversing with the technology of RNAi. [Eric from the SALT pits]

      Nova ScienceNow | RNA, the close chemical cousin of DNA, was once thought to be a bit player in the life of a cell, but not anymore. RNA is now at the heart of a scientific and medical revolution. It’s a revolution that started with the cultivation of a purple petunia, and it has led scientists to what may be the most important advance in biology in decades.

      Through a process known as RNAi (the “i” is for interference), researchers have a new way to shut off specific genes, yielding insights into the human genome as well as providing potential treatments for a wide range of diseases.
