FlyView is the beginning of an image database on Drosophila development
and genetics, especially on expression patterns of genes (enhancer trap
lines, cloned genes).The concept of FlyView includes compatibility to FlyBase,
the main Drosophila database.
Our aim is to establish the possibilty to compare images on the computer
screen and to search for special patterns at different developmental stages.
Therefore, all images are accompanied by text descriptions that can be used
The success of this database exclusively depends on the activity of the
Drosophila community. All Drosophila workers are asked to
contribute to this database by submitting images and accompanying text.
In our first project we will collect Images of enhancer-trap lines
In many laboratories around the world thousands of enhancer-trap lines
were isolated by different methods and by using a variety of transposons.
The expression patterns of many of these lines were published, most of them
were not, but the flies are maintained in the stock collection at least
for a limited time.Submitting material to FlyView is explained HERE.
We want to collect pictures of expression patterns of all lines (published
and unpublished) that are available for use by Drosophila researchers.
