Dear Drosophilists,

	Here, we announce a partial opening of RNAi fly bank in National 
Institute of Genetics (NIG) to the community, supported by the grant of 
National bio-Resource Project (NBRP) in Japan.  A comprehensive 
RNAi-mutant fly bank covering all 13,800 Drosophila melanogaster genes 
is being constructed. We have opened 1,136 lines as far, the number 
will increase up to 2,500 lines until the end of 2007. Please check out 
our new web site.

Part of the site is still under construction, however please enjoy and 
if you have any questions or suggestions, please contact Dr. Ryu Ueda 
(rueda at lab.nig.ac.jp) or Kazuko Fujitani (flyadmin at lab.nig.ac.jp). We 
hope our RNAi flies could be useful for your research and Drosophilla 

Notice -- Since RNAi flies were constructed by collaboration with 
MITILS (Mitsubishi Kagaku Life Sciences Institute), MTA document will 
be necessary to order our flies. If possible, please enter the 
principal investigator's name when you make a request.
