Using the P[wHy] hybrid transposable element to disrupt genes in region 54D-55B in Drosophila melanogaster.

Understanding the function of each gene in the genome of a model organism such as Drosophila melanogaster is an important goal. The development of improved methods for uncovering the mutant phenotypes of specific genes can accelerate achievement of this goal. The P[wHy] hybrid transposable element can be used to generate nested sets of precisely mapped… (More)
