RNAi libraries

  • Collectively, the RNAi lines cover 12,671 Drosophila melanogaster protein-coding genes (91% of the total).
  • GD collection covers 11,292 genes (81%).
  • KK collection covers 9,646 genes (69%).
  • shRNA collection covers 725 genes (5.2%) - more under construction.
  • For over 8,500 genes, we have two or more independent lines available.

 

In addition, the VDRC provides:

  • 13,848 DNA constructs used to generate the GD collection
  • 16 toolkit stocks used for construction of all three RNAi libraries.
