Is your favorite fly gene an unknown? Not represented by an allele at
Bloomington? Mutations lead to pleiotropic defects that prevent study
in your tissue of interest? Would otherwise benefit from a robust,
inducible transgenic RNAi hairpin approach?
The NIH-funded Transgenic RNAi Project (TRiP) at Harvard Medical
School is accepting community nominations.
Based on these gene nominations and other criteria (including input
from Bloomington), the TRiP will decide for what genes they will
generate hairpin constructs and corresponding transgenic flies.
To learn more about the TRiP and to make nominations, please visit
the "Nominations" section of the TRiP webpages (within the Drosophila
RNAi Screening Center's website) at http://flyrnai.org/TRiP-HOME.html
