An accurate, comprehensive, non-redundant and up-to-date bibliography is a crucial component of any Model Organism Database (MOD). Principally, the bibliography provides a set of references that are specific to the field served by the MOD. Moreover, it serves as a backbone to which all curated biological data can be attributed. Here, we describe the(More)
FlyBase ( is the primary database of genetic and genomic data for the insect family Drosophilidae. Historically, Drosophila melanogaster has been the most extensively studied species in this family, but recent determination of the genomic sequences of an additional 11 Drosophila species opens up new avenues of research for other(More)
FlyBase ( is the primary resource for molecular and genetic information on the Drosophilidae. The database serves researchers of diverse backgrounds and interests, and offers several different query tools to provide efficient access to the data available and facilitate the discovery of significant relationships within the database.(More)
Many publications describe sets of genes or gene products that share a common biology. For example, genome-wide studies and phylogenetic analyses identify genes related in sequence; high-throughput genetic and molecular screens reveal functionally related gene products; and advanced proteomic methods can determine the subunit composition of multi-protein(More)
Release 6, the latest reference genome assembly of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, was released by the Berkeley Drosophila Genome Project in 2014; it replaces their previous Release 5 genome assembly, which had been the reference genome assembly for over 7 years. With the enormous amount of information now attached to the D. melanogaster genome in(More)
Since 1992, FlyBase ( has been an essential online resource for the Drosophila research community. Concentrating on the most extensively studied species, Drosophila melanogaster, FlyBase includes information on genes (molecular and genetic), transgenic constructs, phenotypes, genetic and physical interactions, and reagents such as stocks and(More)
Solution-phase transient dc photoconductivity (TDCP) measurements are used to address the question of exciton localization/delocalization in strongly coupled oligomeric porphyrins and in well-defined, higher-order assemblies of oligomers (ladder and prism assemblies). The approach used is determination of the excited-state excess polarizability volume,(More)
For nearly 25 years, FlyBase ( has provided a freely available online database of biological information about Drosophila species, focusing on the model organism D. melanogaster. The need for a centralized, integrated view of Drosophila research has never been greater as advances in genomic, proteomic, and high-throughput technologies add to the(More)
2-(dideuteriomethylene)-1,1-bis(4-methoxyphenyl)cyclopropane (d(2)-1) undergoes degenerate rearrangement in both singlet- and triplet-sensitized electron-transfer photoreactions. Nanosecond time-resolved absorption spectroscopy on laser flash photolysis of the unlabeled 1 with 9,10-dicyanoanthracene, 1,2,4,5-tetracyanobenzene, or N-methylquinolinium(More)
The dynamics of the geminate radical-ion pairs formed by electron transfer to the excited states of cyanoanthracenes from 2-phenylcyclopropylamines are dominated by exothermic bond cleavage of the amine radical cations. Quantitative studies of product formation as a function of the energetics of the photochemical and corresponding thermal reactions provide(More)
