Areas of Expertise:
RNAi, CRISPRs, functional genomics, genome engineering
At the Drosophila RNAi Screening Center (DRSC) and more recently founded Genome Engineering Production Group (GEPG), we focus on the use of and new developments in RNA interference (RNAi), the CRISPR/Cas system, and other functional genomics approaches, including genome engineering. We are a community-focused group dedicated to transferring technologies, know-how and research materials to others for their research. We also have a growing suite of software tools and databases. Our resources are developed primarily for use with Drosophila melanogaster but many of the same approaches, underlying software, research materials, etc. can be used for non-model insects.
