We are pleased to announce that we have been funded by NIH NIGMS to form the Drosophila Research & Screening Center-Biomedical Technology Research Resource (DRSC-BTRR). The P41-funded DRSC-BTRR (N. Perrimon, PI; S. Mohr, Co-I) builds upon and extends past goals of the Drosophila RNAi Screening Center.

As the DRSC-BTRR, we are working together with collaborators whose 'driving biomedical projects' inform development of new technologies at the DRSC. At the same time, we continue to support Drosophila cell-based RNAi and CRIPSR knockout screens and related activities.

Technological areas in which we are focusing include further development of CRISPR-based technologies for use in Drosophila cells and in vivo, development of proteomics technologies for Drosophila, and extension of technologies to non-model insects. We will be making additions to this website to reflect the new goals and structure.

We look ahead to the years ahead with excitement!
