Genomes can be sequenced with relative ease, but ascribing gene function remains a major challenge. Genetically tractable model systems are crucial to meet this challenge. One powerful model is the social amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum, a eukaryotic microbe widely used to study diverse questions in the cell, developmental and evolutionary biology.

We present methods and resources, generated using REMI-seq, for high throughput gene function analysis in a key model system.
