Animal genomes contain on the order of at least hundreds of microRNAs (miRNAs). Although most remain uncharacterized, it is already clear that miRNAs regulate many bio-logical processes. A number of Drosophila miRNAs have been identified as likely cell death regulators, but functions for most have simply not been explored. Here we describe a protocol for identifying miRNAs that can act as cell death regulators. We also describe a simple protocol for testing roles for mRNAs identified as candidate miRNA targets using computational or other approaches.
