Fly RNAi & Huntingtons disease.

The paper displayed at this post at Drosophila Models of Human Diseases fits here as well--Lu and colleagues describe the results of genome-wide RNAi screens in fly cells plus in vivo fly follow-up in a disease model mutant.

Another fly CRISPR report.

Early online at Genetics--this report from Kondo and Ueda on using CRISPRs in flies.
