Drosophilia transgenesis service

The Drosophila transgenesis service provides EMBL scientists with the expertise necessary to micro-inject Drosophila embryos for generating transgenic lines.

Groups in this unit seek to elucidate general principles and mechanisms underlying the emergence of a dynamic organization in developing organisms. Members of the unit combine the power of genetic model organisms with quantitative imaging and –omics technologies, synthetic biology, reduced (in vitro) systems and theoretical modelling, to create a cross-cutting approach to modern developmental biology.
