flying and not flying flies

on Thursday, June 30th, 2011 11:35 | by Julien Colomb

I checked the putative non-flying flies we ordered. All are normal when grown at 18°. While developing at 25°, different phenotypes can be seen:
CyK: those flies have curled wings, but can fly.
U2: those flies have curled wings, cannot fly, but still beat their wings while walking (like if they could not figure out that they cannot fly ?).

other flies show no phenotype at all.
