In this commentary, Rob Kulathinal describes two articles from the Perrimon lab, each describing a new online resource that can assist geneticists with the design of their RNA interference (RNAi) experiments. Hu et al.’s “UP-TORR: online tool for accurate and up-to-date annotation of RNAi reagents” and “FlyPrimerBank: An online database for Drosophila melanogaster gene expression analysis and knockdown evaluation of RNAi reagents” are published, respectively, in this month’s issues of GENETICS and G3.
