A survey of 6,300 genomic fragments for cis-regulatory activity in the imaginal discs of Drosophila melanogaster.

Over 6,000 fragments from the genome of Drosophila melanogaster were analyzed for their ability to drive expression of GAL4 reporter genes in the third-instar larval imaginal discs. About 1,200 reporter genes drove expression in the eye, antenna, leg, wing, haltere, or genital imaginal discs. The patterns ranged from large regions to individual cells. About… CONTINUE READING
