SuperFly : a history of genetics( Visual )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With two thirds of the same DNA as our own and a two-week breeding cycle, Drosophila melanogaster, or the fruit fly, is an ideal lab specimen. Using specialized photography, 3-D animation, and graphics, this program tells the story of the fruit fly's role in the history of genetics. Dramatizations recap Thomas Morgan's groundbreaking experiments at Columbia University. Nobel laureate Professor Eric Wieschaus of Princeton University, Professor Tim Tully of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Professor Mike Levine of the University of California, Berkeley, and other scientists discuss ongoing research
Clonal analysis of early development in Drosophila melanogaster by Eric F Wieschaus( Book )

Patterns of development( Visual )

2 editions published in 1987 in Catalan and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Studies the patterns of gene action during the earliest stages of development
Understanding reproductive aging regulation and mechanisms using a Caenorhabditis elegans model by Shijing Luo( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To discover the cause of C. elegans reproductive decline, we took a systematic approach and found that C. elegans reproductive span is also limited by oocyte quality, rather than ovulation rate, progeny number, or body size. Reduced TGF-beta Sma/Mab and IIS signaling delay reproductive aging through modulating multiple aspects of the reproductive process, including embryonic viability, oocyte fertilizability, chromosome segregation, DNA damage resistance, and morphology of the oocytes and germline. Furthermore, TGF-beta Sma/Mab and IIS pathways both act non-autonomously in the soma to regulate reproductive aging, and their activities are required at least partially in adulthood
Quantitative Analysis of Signaling Pathways: Imaging and Modeling of the Terminal Patterning System of the Drosophila Embryo by Yoosik Kim( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the key concepts of Systems Biology is that of a module, defined as a network with a function that is largely independent of its context. Based on the modular decomposition of large networks it may be possible to predict their dynamics and function from properties of constituent modules. Integral to such an approach is the ability to define individual modules and distinguish their core components from the rest of the network. While conceptually simple, this task can be highly nontrivial in reality
Super-fly( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Documentary looking at the influence of the fruit fly (drosophila) on modern genetics. The fruit fly shares two thirds of our genes, is cheap and reproduces rapidly so is very popular amongst scientists. The19th century work of Thomas Hunt Morgan is revisited as he was one of the first to champion the fruit fly; he believed it would provide him with a key to work out how evolution took place but he needed a mutant fly to cross-breed with. By chance one day a white-eyed fly came into his lab, allowing him to test out theories of genetic inheritance. Gregor Mendel established a similar theory with his close study of pea plants. In the 1970s Nobel Prize winner Eric Wieschaus worked very closely with drosophila; he describes his work on fly embryos to locate compound genes. Professor Tim Tully used fruit flies to study memory in the 1980s, he believes they have an intelligent streak - using Pavlovian techniques he believes they have the same basic methods of association as humans. Herman Dierick is using them to understand agression - a fly wrestling match is shown in detail; and Paul Shaw is researching the function of sleep using drosophila. In 2000, the fruit fly became the first living creature to have its entire 13, 601 genes mapped out - this was how the similarity between fly and human genes was discovered. Geoffrey Duyk and George Scangos from Exelixis Incorporated are currently using fruit flies to test new medications
