We receive additional support via our participation in the Dana Farber/Harvard Cancer Center Collaborative Functional Genomics Core, which is supported by a grant to E. Benz (PI) from the NIH National Cancer Institute.

We are also grateful for equipment and related support from the Harvard Medical School Tools and Technologies program. HMS-TnT has made it possible for us to purchase and upgrade key equipment, as well as launch new innovative technologies.

An additional project ongoing at our group is the FlyBi project, which is supported by NIH-NHGRI (5R01HG007118; N. Perrimon, PI; M. Vidal, Co-Investigator; S. Celniker, Co-Investigator; S. Mohr, Project Manager).

In collaboration with the Gene Disruption Project we are using CRISPR to introduce swappable insertion cassettes into genes (NIH 5R01GM067858; H. Bellen, PI).

Prof. Perrimon is an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
