Abstract: This weighty book was written with the objective of providing a summary of the practice of Drosophila genetics genetics Subject Category: Disciplines, Occupations and Industries see more details and biology biology Subject Category: Disciplines, Occupations and Industries see more emphasis is on experimental methods, the author's aim being to provide a Cited by: out of 5 stars Great Fly Genetics Book. Reviewed in the United States on Decem Verified Purchase. I used this to complement the fly genetics portion in the Genetics class I was taking. It was a great help and I highly recommend it students taking their first Genetics course at undergraduate or graduate level/5(12). This book contains 12 chapters divided into two sections. Section 1 is "Drosophila - Model for Genetics." It covers introduction, chromosomal polymorphism, polytene chromosomes, chromosomal inversion, chromosomal evolution, cell cycle regulators in meiosis and nongenetic transgenerational inheritance in Drosophila. It also includes ecological genetics, wild-type Author: Farzana Khan Perveen. Mark S. LeDoux, in Movement Disorders (Second Edition), Flies. The fruit fly, Drosophila melangogaster, has played an influential role in genetics for almost a recently, flies have been used to study neurodegeneration in Huntington (Apostol et al., ), Parkinson (Greene et al., ), and Alzheimer (Greeve et al., ) diseases.

A pioneer of genetics research in the first half of the twentieth century, Thomas Morgan won the Nobel Prize in for research that he had begun in . The work by Lindsley and Grell is a milestone for drosophila genetics. All serious geneticists know this book and admire and respect the accomplishment it represents. While Mr. Frank's review is doubtless intended to be funny, it is not. It is simply disrespectful of the Cited by: This book provides window for Drosophila research as a toolbox for biology and medicine and its profile acts in top creatures for science experimentation.

C.J. O'Kane, in Encyclopedia of Genetics, Of the many organisms studied by geneticists in the twentieth century, the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster has become one of the most widely used. It is small (adults a few mm long), fecund (hundreds of progeny from a single female), a rapid breeder (generation time about 10 days), innocuous, and an undemanding laboratory pet.
