Abstract: The Vienna Drosophila RNAi Center (VDRC) is a joint initiative of the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA) and the Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP). The VDRC exploits and further develops the Drosophila transgenic RNAi library generated by the Dickson group, formerly at IMBA and now at the IMP. Its mission is to promote scientific discoveries based on the use of this technology. The in vivo RNAi approach allows researchers to systematically knock down individual Drosophila genes, using the GAL4/UAS system to target the RNAi to specific cells in the animal. With over 85% of the Drosophila genome covered, this promises to be a powerful method to assign functions to known and newly-annotated genes from the genome sequencing effort.
