Gene knock-ins in Drosophila using homology-independent insertion of universal donor plasmids

Justin Bosch, Ryan Colbeth, Jonathan Zirin, Norbert Perrimon

Describes tools for creating knock-ins without the requirement for cloning homolgy arms.

A large-scale resource for tissue-specific CRISPR mutagenesis in Drosophila

Fillip Port, Claudia Strein, Mona Stricker, Benedikt Rauscher, Florian Heigwer, Jun Zhou, Celine Beyersdörffer, Jana Frei, Amy Hess, Katharina Kern, Roberta Malamud, Bojana Pavlovic, Kristin Rädecke, Lukas Schmitt, Lukas Voos, Erica Valentini, Michael Boutros
