This Week in Nature

In Nature early online this week, scientists used an RNAi screen in Drosophila to study the Notch signaling pathway during external sensory organ development. Their work identified six new genes involved in asymmetric cell division and 23 novel genes regulating the Notch pathway. Bioinformatic analysis allowed them to construct an interaction network map for Notch signaling and asymmetric cell division.
