Site directed Transgenic Drosophila

By | July 8, 2021

Transgenesis in Fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster has come a long way from the days of landmark discovery of Spradling and Rubin in 1982. Drosophila research is highly dependent on P element-mediated transgenesis, as majority of its genetic tools depends on germline transformation by P- element transformation vector – like UAS-GAL4 system, UAS RNAi, FRT FLP… Read More »

Transgenesis in Drosophila melanogaster

By | April 17, 2021

The wide array of genetic tools available for Drosophila makes it one of popular eukaryotic model system to study numerous biological questions concerning development, genetics,evolution, cell biology, neuroscience and disease. We so far talked about UAS GAL4 system and P element mutagenesis and today we look into another very pivotal genetic tool used to study… Read More »
