Drosophila--the scientist's favorite laboratory organism--is a key subject for studying genetics, development, and behavior. The second edition of this popular hands-on guide brings the methodology up-to-date, with contributions from the leading researchers in the field. Chapters include the elements of Drosophila biology and genetics; mutagenesis; transposons--gene tagging and mutagenesis; chromosome mechanics: the genetic manipulation of aneuploid stocks; enhancer traps; looking at embryos; immunolabelling of Drosophila; population and ecological genetics; behavior, learning, and memory; cell culture; and preparation of nucleic acids.
