About this book


This volume provides current up-to-date protocols for preparing the ovary for various imaging techniques, genetic protocols for generating mutant clones, mosaic analysis and assessing cell death. Chapters address methods for performing genome wide gene expression analysis and bioinformatics for studies of RNA-protein interactions. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.


Authoritative and cutting-edge, Drosophila Oogenesis: Methods and Protocols aims to ensure successful results in the further study of this vital field.
