Previously, we generated P-element insert lines in Drosophila melanogaster with impaired olfactory behavior. One of these smell-impaired (smi) mutants, smi60E, contains a P[lArB] transposon in the second intron of the dsc1 gene near a nested gene encoding the L41 ribosomal protein. The dsc1 gene encodes an ion channel of unknown function homologous to the(More)
The avoidance response to repellent odorants in Drosophila melanogaster, a response essential for survival, provides an advantageous model for studies on the genetic architecture of olfactory behavior. Transposon tagging in a highly inbred strain of flies in combination with a rapid and simple statistical behavioral assay enables the identification of not(More)
This paper proposes groundwater flow simulation models based on explicit finite difference method (FDFLOW) and Galerkin finite element method (FEFLOW) and solute transport simulation models based on Galerkin finite element method (FESOLUTE), random walk method (RWSOLUTE) and modified method of characteristic (MMOCSOLUTE). These coupled flow and transport(More)
— This paper describes Galerkin finite element (FEFLOW) models for the simulation of groundwater flow in two-dimensional, transient, unconfined groundwater flow systems. This study involves validation of FEFLOW model with reported analytical solutions and also comparison of reported Explicit Finite Difference Model for groundwater flow simulation (FDFLOW).(More)
