Genetic manipulation of both host cells and pathogen--"iMAD" protocol

O'Connor TJ, Isberg RR. iMAD, a genetic screening strategy for dissecting complex interactions between a pathogen and its host. Nat Protoc. 2014 Aug;9(8):1916-30. PMID: 25033208.

From the abstract: "... Here we present a protocol for dissecting the interaction between a pathogen (Legionella pneumophila) and its host (cultured Drosophila melanogaster cells) using bacterial mutagenesis and host RNAi. ..."
