Flies & Flu
With today's news on my mind, I searched for "Drosophila" and "flu" today at PubMed and that led me to: Hao et al. (2008) Drosophila RNAi screen indentifies host genes important for influenza virus replication. Nature 454:890-893. Protocol Notes: Screened in D-Mel2 cells with Ambion dsRNAs. Follow-up in mammalian cells using siRNAs.
