FlyBase is “A Database of Drosophila Genes & Genomes” sent email notifications of the IGTRCN’s launch to its subscribers. The success of the IGTRCN will depend very much on tapping into the technologies and technological knowledge within the fly community.
We already have a number of ‘fly people’ participating.
The IGTRCN is particularly fortunate to have Thom Kaufman (Indiana University), one of the PI’s on the FlyBase project as a member of the IGTRCN Steering Committee.
Thank you, Thom!
