Our primary interest is to probe into the genetic and molecular mechanisms underlying the development of the chemosensory and neuromuscular systems inDrosophila melanogaster. We have generated and characterized 40 Gal4 enhancer trap lines with P-Gal4 insertion as an attempt to identify genes with a likely role in the development and differentiation of chemosensory and neuromuscular tissues, and at the same time to obtain Gal4 drivers that would facilitate targeted ectopic expression of genes in… CONTINUE READING
