Quote of the Week: Technology

Quote of of the summer, at this point? It's been a while!
My hypodermic syringe is of the simplest. It consists of a little glass tube, tapering sharply at one end. By drawing in my breath, I fill it with the liquid to be tested; I expel the contents by blowing. Its point is almost as fine as a hair and enables me to regulate the dose to the degree which I want. A cubic millimetre is the usual charge. The injection has to be made at parts that are generally covered with horn. So as not to break the point of my fragile instrument, I prepare the way with a needle, with which I prick the victim at the spot required. I insert the tip of the loaded injector in the hole thus made and I blow. The thing is done in a moment, very neatly and in an orthodox fashion, favourable to delicate experiments. I am delighted with my modest apparatus.

RNAi Review

Excited to see this week that a PubMed search now pulls up the Mohr (that's me), Bakal & Perrimon review that we've been working on for Annual Reviews of Biochemistry.

Annu Rev Biochem. 2010 Apr 1. [Epub ahead of print]
Genomic Screening with RNAi: Results and Challenges.
Mohr S, Bakal C, Perrimon N.

Abstract: RNA interference (RNAi) is an effective tool for genome-scale, high-throughput analysis of gene function. In the past five years, a number of genome-scale RNAi high-throughput screens (HTSs) have been done in both Drosophila and mammalian cultured cells to study diverse biological processes, including signal transduction, cancer biology, and host cell responses to infection. Results from these screens have led to the identification of new components of these processes and, importantly, have also provided insights into the complexity of biological systems, forcing new and innovative approaches to understanding functional networks in cells. Here, we review the main findings that have emerged from RNAi HTS and discuss technical issues that remain to be improved, in particular the verification of RNAi results and validation of their biological relevance. Furthermore, we discuss the importance of multiplexed and integrated experimental data analysis pipelines to RNAi HTS.

Myself and co-organizers L. Perkins, M. Boutros and K. Keleman are presenting a workshop in the Friday afternoon workshop session at the 51st ADRC in D.C. this week.

The lineup:

RNAi screening in cells: S. Mohr, D. Sims (FLIGHT), M. Boutros
RNAi screening in vivo: K. Keleman, F. Schnorrer, L. Perkins
Q&A to follow

The emphasis will be on available resources. We have prepared a handout of information about various resources (around the globe and online) for doing Drosophila RNAi in cells and in vivo. If we have left over copies, we will make them available at the registration desk, near the posters, or another obvious and appropriate location after the workshop.

Hope to see you there!
