The second edition of the highly successful “grey book” Drosophila: A Laboratory Handbook,first published in 1989, has been completely updated to reflect advances in techniques and knowledge. The original format is maintained, providing a handy reference guide to most aspects of the biology of Drosophila.Each of the thirty–six chapters summarizes the present state of the subject, written with a historical perspective, but with an emphasis on the practical use of genetic and other methods. Extensively referenced.

About the author (2005)

Ashbruner is Professor of Biology in the Department of Genetics at the University of Cambridge. By training and inclination, he is a Drosophila geneticist, although for more than a decade, he has not been where he belongs-the lab bench-but in front of computer screens. He spent six years at the European Bioinformatics Institute, first as the Institute's Research Programme Coordinator, and then as its Joint-Head. He is a fellow of the Royal Society and an Honorary Foreign Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
