Drosophila melanogaster

View Resource Interactive Fly

This site is award-winning and comprehensive. It thoroughly discusses genes, tissues, biochemical paths, and developmental processes in the fruit fly, Drosophila. Its gene index identifies genes with their functions, maternal and zygotically transcribed genes, genes important to behavior and genes in conserved pathways. Its tissue and organ development section shows stages and an atlas, as well...
View Resource The Transgenic Fly Virtual Lab

Description from the website: This interactive, modular lab explores the techniques used to make transgenic flies and demonstrates how these flies can be used to study gene expression. Scientists use transgenic organisms, which contain DNA that scientists inserted in the organisms? genomes, to research many biological processes. In this lab, students produce and conduct experiments with v...
