Bio::Tools::SiRNA::Ruleset::tuschl(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation Bio::Tools::SiRNA::Ruleset::tuschl(3)

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

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";

This package implements the rules for designing siRNA reagents developed by Tuschl and colleagues (see 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:

Bio::Tools::SiRNA, Bio::SeqFeature::SiRNA::Pair, Bio::SeqFeature::SiRNA::Oligo.

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.                  - General discussion  - About the mailing lists
