Suppose my PhD dissertation title is "small RNAs and gene silencing with RNAi". The university manual says I have to have uppercase title in my dissertation which then becomes "SMALL RNAS AND GENE SILENCING WITH RNAI". In this case, the upper case title could be confusing as it doesn't properly reflect what "RNAi" and "small RNAs" mean. What would be your suggestion? Thanks
You should probably just reword your title; it will be all the clearer for it.
I'm not sure if this is exactly right, but you'll get the idea:
RNA INTERFERENCE: GENE SILENCING WITH SMALL RNA
RNA INTERFERENCE (RNAI): GENE SILENCING WITH SMALL RNA (SIRNA)
If you are worried about using RNA singular, try:
RNA INTERFERENCE: GENE SILENCING WITH SMALL RNA TYPES
