Also on my desk today? Catching up on a new small-scale fly cell RNAi screen. The authors tested one dsRNA per gene with several different cell lines in this focused study.
Davis et al. (2011) Identification of common and cell type specific LXXLL motif EcR cofactors using a bioinformatics refined candidate RNAi screen in Drosophila melanogaster cell lines. BMC Dev Biol. 11(1):66. PubMed ID: 22050674.
Reminder: The DRSC can help with small-scale screens by building custom libraries in 96- or 384-well plates based on our existing libraries of templates.
