So, I'm doing some drosophila experiments with my high schoolers and I had really poor production of wild type individuals for doing the experiment resulting in not enough to cross with everyone... I ...
I am wondering how much total RNA could be extracted from a single D. melanogaster brain. I could not find this information from the literature. The closest hit was this paper: ...
I've asked this before in stack overflow's cognitive science community, and someone recommended me to ask here: I've found a couple of studies using microdialysis on insects, but didn't found any in ...
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 ...
Following up from this question, I am wondering if the phenomenon of genome-wide suppressed male recombination is limited to Drosophila melanogaster or is common to all Drosophila? The answer to the ...
I've just finished a project on loss of synaptic plasticity in Drosophila melanogaster larvae with uas control gal4 sensor for cAMP expressed in the motor neurons. I induced neurodegeneration through ...
