    many purposes, which include genes, genotyping, sequencing, cloning, etc. (Kelly, 2016). This allows for the ability to conduct DNA analysis revealing varying compositions and properties. For the following experiment the genomic DNA from Drosophila melanogaster, was utilized to be cloned and sequenced for either actin or 18s rRNA. In order to clone and sequence the specific section of DNA 9 specific steps had to be conducted and they are as follows: extraction/purification of DNA, amplify the…

    2.RELATED WORK The artificial bee colony (ABC), an optimization technique is based upon the intelligent moving behavior of honey bee swarm was proposed by Karaboga in 2005. This kind of new Meta heuristic is inspired by the clever foraging behavior of honey bee swarm. The criteria presented in the work is for numerical function optimization. The advantage of ABC is that the global search ability in the algorithm is implemented by introducing neighborhood source production mechanism. Rao et al.…

    as drosophila have been used extensively to demonstrate the classical Mendelian laws because they are inexpensive and abundant in genetic variations due to a small number of chromosomes. The purpose of this lab was to determine the phenotypic ratio for monohybrid and dihybrid crosses using drosophila. In a monohybrid cross, a single trait (eye color) is crossed in the organism and in a dihybrid cross,two different traits (eye color and wings) are crossed for a particular organism (drosophila).…

    Introduction: Drosophila melanogaster, which commonly is known as fruit fly, has been used in genetic study for centuries. They tend to give birth to a large amount of offspring while their life cycles and generations are short. Their genes can be mutated easily by radiation or mutagens in food. They have four large chromosomes with approximately fourteen thousands genes. As expected, human have several times more gene than D. melanogaster, however, we have almost the same number of gene…

    nuisance when I hear the cacophonous drone of its wings and hunt its relatives who buzz too quickly across my vision to properly see. But in a lab, we’re the closest of friends. When in lab, the fruit fly isn’t the fruit fly, but the Drosophila melanogaster. Drosophila melanogaster is an unassuming, unappealing little creature. Their bodies are so normal it is almost boring: beady red eyes and long, translucent wings. The females have a pointed, striped abdomen, while the males have a rounded…

    Spotted Wing Drosophila, (SWD) scientifically known as Drosophila suzukii Matsumura, is not your average fruit fly. Going by multiple aliases such as the cherry fruit fly or the cherry vinegar fly, the SWD has made a rather unattractive name for itself. The Spotted Wing Drosophila’s Taxonomic Tree is as follows: Domain: Eukaryota, Kingdom: Metazoa, Phylum: Arthropoda, Subphylum: Uniramia, Class: Insect, Order: Diptera, Family: Drosophilidae, Genus: Drosophila, and Specieis: Drosophila…

    Culture vessels were prepared by following the instructions in the Carolina Drosophila Manual. One-part Drosophila medium was deposited into the bottom of the culture vessels with one-part water. Then the medium was left to firm. Once the medium was firm, the yeast was added as a food source to sustain development, medium is for the larva to eat…

    puzzle remains. One of the animals that exhibit this behavior is the Drosophila Melanogaster or fruit flies, in which this paper will be focusing on. Fruit flies have the ability to reproduce rapidly, tendency for males to mate intensely with immature males (Dukas, 2010). Over the past few years, since fruit flies’ genome are simple, researchers made a constant effort in studying the same-sex behavior in Drosophila Melanogaster or fruit flies and how a particular mutation in a gene was involved…

    genome and the short life cycle of Drosophila melanogaster makes the use of this organism proper to understand the role of signaling pathways, mainly the Notch signaling pathway, in the development of sensory organs in organisms. The molecular interactions of some genes with the Notch signaling pathway can help us understand cell differentiation in sensory organs. The gene Hairless shows high levels of interaction with the Notch signaling pathway of Drosophila melanogaster. Hairless was first…

    In reference to Figure 1, Drosophila melanogaster has a total genome size of one-hundred and seventy million base pairs of which yields only fourteen-thousand protein encoding genes. However, humans have a total of around three billion base pairs that yield roughly twenty-one thousand protein encoding genes. Drosophila melanogaster is relatively simple compared to the complexity of Homo sapiens, yet Drosophila melanogaster has almost one-hundred and sixty-nine billion more…
