I have 2 transgenic lines of Drosophila. I would like to cross them and get both transgene in the same fly. To start this cross, does it matter which fly is female or male? Or as long as the female is ...
Drosophila polytene chromosomes have been particularly useful in genetic research, as it made cytogenetic gene mapping possible with very little effort. This was primarily accomplished due to polytene ...
"Males do not show meiotic recombination, facilitating genetic studies." For a while I have known that this phenomenon occurs, this quote comes from the Wikipedia page on Drosophila melanogaster, ...
