The new technology of RNA interference (RNAi) is allowing high-throughput screening of cells to examine many biological processes. Michelson discusses one such system in which the Drosophila Hedgehog (Hh) pathway was analyzed by systematic genome-wide RNAi analysis. The results not only suggest unexpected overlap in the Hh and Wingless (Wg) pathways, but also provide proof of principle for the development of high-throughput assays using RNAi techniques.
