We are excited to announce that the BDSC has acquired ~7,300 split-GAL4 hemidrivers from the Janelia Research Campus. A special thank you is due to the Janelia Research Campus for donating these stocks and in particular we'd like to thank Gerry Rubin, Barry Dickson, Todd Laverty, Karen Hibbard, and Rob Svirskas. We were able to acquire these stocks thanks to supplemental support from the NIH Office of the Director and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
This support will allow us to transfer the stocks from Janelia to the BDSC and maintain the full collection of split-GAL4 hemidrivers for at least one year. After the initial period of support from NIH, we will evaluate continued maintenance of the entire collection or a subset based on usage of the stocks and availability of external funding.
