Detailed information on the above options

FlyBase (Drosophila)
This Drosophila database contains genetic and other information collected from all current and past scientific studies on these species of fruit fly.

WWW Virtual Library: Drosophila
This is part of the Biosciences area of the WWW Virtual Library. This section of the library covers uses of the model organism Drosophila melanogaster for research in genetics and developmental biology. It is an extensive list of Drosophila resources.

FlyView - A Drosophila Image Database
This holds data on Drosophila development and genetics, especially on expression patterns of genes (enhancer trap lines, cloned genes). Their aim is to establish the possibilty to compare images on the computer screen or to search for special patterns at different developmental stages. Therefore, all images are accompanied by text descriptions that can be used to search with keywords.

Berkeley Drosophila Genome Project
Aim to


European Drosophila Genome Project (EDGP)
The European Drosophila Genome Project has the objective of sequencing the X chromosome of Drosophila melanogaster. It has been funded since January 1997 with the immediate aim of sequencing divisions 1 to 3 of the X chromosome (about 3-3.5 Mbases) in the next three years. Sequencing is based on the cosmid physical map, constructed by the European Drosophila Physical Mapping Project.

GIFTS Server
A collection of databases and information on gene interactions in Drosophila.

The Interactive Fly
A guide to Drosophila genes and their roles in development

National Insect Genetic Resources
Insects impact American agriculture both as destructive and beneficial organisms. Insect pests, parasites, predators, products, and pollinators are all economically important. It is critically important to distinguish between different species, races, stocks, strains, biotypes, and other genetic entities and to document their different interactions with agriculture and the environment.

The goals of the National Invertebrate Genetic Resources Program include:

Mosquito Genomics WWW Server
This provides access to mosquito genomics and links to other genomics WWW servers, to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, and to other WWW servers around the world.

Sericultural Science, the University of Tokyo
This provides information on the insect group at the University of Tokyo and genetic maps of Bombyx mori.
