The fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster has been an influential invertebrate model organism in understanding gene function for over a century. In addition to being suitable for classical genetics, its adaptability to evolving gene modification tools ranging from transgenesis to novel genome modification tools including CRISPR has made the fly a sought after model organism in modern biology. Over the past five years the Fly Facility, C-CAMP has provided services to facilitate modern molecular genetics in Drosophila.
PLEASE NOTE: ***Fly Facility will no longer take P-element mediated transgenesis services w.e.f. April 1st, 2017***
