The advent of RNA interference (RNAi) based library screening approaches has sparked a surge in loss-of-function genetic screens. Several recent screens have aimed to identify novel regulators of cancer-related phenotypes. These employ various tumor cell types to model malignant cell functions and use different RNAi effector library approaches to reveal a cache of novel tumor regulators. This review surveys recent RNAi screens conducted in transformed human cells.
