When an RNAi experiment is curated by WormBase, the experimental details are attached to the sequence of the interfering RNA, not directly to the gene name; therefore stating ‚"we did RNAi against unc-22" is not enough information for proper curation. We need to unabigiously assign the sequence used in an experiment. In the above case we are left to guess if you used a genomic sequence for interference (partial or full gene) or a cDNA ‚ (partial, full length which isoform?.
