Download Behavioral Genetics of the Fly (Drosophila Melanogaster) by Josh Dubnau PDF

By Josh Dubnau

The typical fruit fly - Drosophila melanogaster - has been the topic of genetics study because the early 20th century. the total genomic series of Drosophila used to be released in 2000 and it truly is nonetheless the version organism par excellence for the experimental learn of organic phenomena and approaches. it's also via some distance the simplest version for learning gene functionality in mammals, together with people. offering cutting-edge reports at the behaviour of Drosophila, this quantity discusses common and pathological versions of neurobehavioral issues and encompasses the specialized tools which were used, from anatomical, histological, immunohistological and neurophysiological to genomic, genetic and behavioural assays. A accomplished and thorough reference, this quantity is a worthy source for college kids and researchers alike throughout numerous disciplines of lifestyles sciences, together with behavioral genetics, neurogenetics, behavioral neuroscience, molecular biology, evolutionary biology and inhabitants biology.
