DNA Repair Protocols: Identification of Genes Required for Damage Survival Using a Cell-Based RNAi Screen Against the Drosophila Genome

July 23, 2012

Abstract Exposure to DNA-damaging agents invokes biological responses necessary for damage recovery and cell survival. Despite the presence of intact DNA repair pathways, a lack of certain other biological pathways has been shown to sensitize cells to …
