NAME ^

Bio::Tools::SiRNA::Ruleset::tuschl - Perl object implementing the tuschl group's rules for designing small inhibitory RNAs

SYNOPSIS ^

Do not use this module directly. Instead, use Bio::Tools::SiRNA and specify the tuschl ruleset:

  use Bio::Tools::SiRNA;

  my $sirna_designer = Bio::Tools::SiRNA->new( -target => $bio_seq,
                                               -rules  => 'tuschl'
    );
  my @pairs = $sirna_designer->design;

  foreach $pair (@pairs) {
      my $sense_oligo_sequence = $pair->sense->seq;
      my $antisense_oligo_sequence = $pair->antisense->seq;

      # print out results
      print join ("\t", $pair->start, $pair->end, $pair->rank,
                  $sense_oligo_sequence, $antisense_oligo_sequence), "\n";
  }

DESCRIPTION ^

This package implements the rules for designing siRNA reagents developed by Tuschl and colleagues (see http://www.rockefeller.edu/labheads/tuschl/sirna.html). It looks for oligos that match the following patterns in the target sequence:

  1. AA(N19)TT (rank 1)
  2. AA(N21) (rank 2)
  3. NA(N21) (rank 3)

The package also supports selection of siRNA seqences that can be transcribed by pol3:

    A[A,G]N17[C,T]

Mailing Lists

User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably to the Bioperl mailing list. Your participation is much appreciated.

Support

Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:

bioperl-l@bioperl.org

rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and reponsive experts will be able look at the problem and quickly address it. Please include a thorough description of the problem with code and data examples if at all possible.
