GenomeRNAi - a database for RNAi phenotypes and reagents

What is GenomeRNAi?

GenomeRNAi is a database containing phenotypes from RNA interference (RNAi) screens in Drosophila and Homo sapiens. In addition, the database provides an updated resource of RNAi reagents and their predicted quality.

RNAi screening data is extracted from the literature by manual curation, but we also provide a functionality for direct submission by data producers - our preferred option!

Please remember to cite GenomeRNAi to help us secure future funding. We also appreciate your feedback and suggestions!


the GenomeRNAi database either by viewing all screens, by looking at frequent hitters or by choosing an example below

Genes: 841 , CTNNB1 , Pvr , CG9171 , FBgn0036141
Reagents: DRSC03504 , BKN25930
Phenotypes: regulation , decreased , Toll

  • GenomeRNAi v16 released1 June, 2016
    GenomeRNAi 16.0 takes the total of human RNAi screens to 467, and to 207 in Drosophila. The number of gene-phenotype associations has increased to over 2,7 million. Many thanks to Hosono et al. who submitted a screen on Drosophila airway maturation. Try out our new interactive graphical representation of gene-phenotype relationships (example)!
