Forward Genetics in African Trypanosomes

Abstract : Forward genetic screens in Trypanosoma brucei have enabled researchers to move from a candidate-gene based approach to one where we are able to studying all genes required for a single process simultaneously. In this protocol, we describe how to generate RNAi library strains in bloodstream form trypanosomes, run a screen by selecting for drug resistance or using a reporter gene and process the high-throughput sequencing data for a genome scale RNAi library screen.
