The DRSC & TRiP will be at the Annual Drosophila Research Conference (aka 'the fly meeting') in San Diego, CA, in March/April of 2017. Please feel free to contact us if you'd like to set up a meeting to discuss a screen project or other research need we can help with.
The DRSC & TRiP will be represented at the HMS Research Cores Showcase. The event will be comprised of a poster session and reception. The event provides an opportunity for HMS students, postdocs, and faculty can get to know what offerings are available from facilities on the campus. If you are local to HMS, drop by to say hello or ask questions about our offerings in the area of cell-based screening, RNAi and CRISPR fly stocks, and bioinformatics.
The DRSC-Functional Genomics Resources (formerly DRSC & TRiP) will be participating in the Boston Area Drosophila Meeting, which was organized by Alexey Verakas of UMass Boston and Jim Walker of Harvard Medical School. Hear about what's new in technologies and online tools at this regional meeting of experts in Drosophila research.
Functional genomics permits gene function discovery at large scale. The power of the approach increases when related genes in multiple species are shown to have similar functions. We bring together experts in functional genomics in single-cell, invertebrate and vertebrate models to present their effective platforms, with an emphasis on cross-species studies (e.g. parallel screens in multiple species or screens in one system followed up in another). Attendees will learn about functional genomics and analysis workflows, and discuss with experts how our communities can collaborate to harness...
