Breaking Report: Full-Genome Screen for Wg Secretion Regulators

On my desk to read today?

A report on a full-genome cell-based RNAi screen performed here at the DRSC.

Breaking Report: Huntington's Disease Model Study

On my desk today? A very recent report from Schulte, Sepp et al. using Drosophila primary cells. The study included screening of the DRSC Kinases & Phosphatases library.
