[Drosophila] Chromosome silencing

Dear all,

I'm trying to find out if there is any way to inactivate all or part  
of one copy of a chromosome (any chromosome) in D. melanogaster. The  
idea is to make a chromosome (or part of it) hemizygous (as with the X  
chromosome in males) where it wouldn't normally be, so that all genes  
are expressed whether recessive or not.

Many thanks for your time!
