Francois Payre's plenary talk at ADRC 2017 features results from DRSC cell-based screen

March 30, 2017

Those of us lucky enough to be at the Annual Drosophila Research Conference this morning saw a great talk by Francois Payre about regulation of Shavenbaby by small ORFs. A genome-wide cell-based screen done at the DRSC by Emilie Benrabah identified the mechanism of regulation. As this exemplifies, cell screens can help identify key pathways and factors that can then be followed up with in vivo studies.

New stocks added to the TRiP in vivo RNAi library

January 6, 2017

The TRiP has updated and curated our list of in vivo RNAi reagents for gene knockdown in fruitflies. To date, we have produced over 13,000 stocks for the benefit of the scientific community.

Visit the in vivo RNAi fly stocks and vectors page to download an excel file with the full list of fly stocks now available for order from the Bloomington Drosophila Stock Center (BDSC) and the

CRISPR sgRNA design tool now based on Drosophila genome assembly 6

December 21, 2016

We have updated our CRISPR sgRNA design tool. The results and JBrowse display are now based on Drosophila melanogaster FlyBase genome assembly release 6. We have also added seed scores in addition to efficiency prediction scores and other values available on detailed views of sgRNA designs. Quick tips: start a search with a gene symbol or other identifier, use the

59th Annual Drosophila Research Conference

Apr 11 (All day) to Apr 15 (All day)

Location: 

Philadelphia, PA, USA
The DRSC & TRiP leadership consider the Annual Drosophila Research Conference the 'must-go' conference of the year. We use ADRC meetings as an opportunity to update the community on existing and new services, reagent collections, and online tools, as well as for one-on-one consults with researchers planning high-throughput screens. The next ADRC is scheduled for April 11-15. 2018, in Philadelphia, PA, USA. Feel free to contact us if you'll also be there and would Read more about 59th Annual Drosophila Research Conference
