siDirect 2.0 – Target Specific siRNA online Design Site

siDirect 2.0

:: DESCRIPTION

siDirect is a web server for providing efficient and target-specific siRNA design for mammalian RNAi. In this new version, the siRNA design algorithm has been extensively updated to eliminate off-target silencing effects by reflecting our recent finding that the capability of siRNA to induce off-target effect is highly correlated to the thermodynamic stability of the ‘seed’ duplex.
