standard Editing Tribolium’s Genome

Gilles et al (2015) recently published a paper in Development describing CRISPR-mediated gene targeting and gene replacement in the flour beetle Tribolium castaneum. The authors started with the Tribolium line Pig-19, which strongly expresses enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) in […]

standard Transgenic Effectors for Neurogenic Manipulation

Genetic technologies will continue to play an increasingly important role in enabling the function of specific neurons in insect behavior to be determined. The genetic technologies available for manipulating Drosophila melanogaster provides not only great examples but some of these […]
