This week we worked on perfecting the fly hooking. Some of the data we got is as follows (Data from just one fly).
> Worked on the ping pong ball machine in the last week.
The text file looks something like this: Not very sure how to interpret it because there is no column header.
> Did not find any RU486 fly lines in the Brembs fly stock.
What is RU486 and why are we using it? It is a conditional transactivation method that gets activated when introduced with Mifepristone/RU486 and works on the UAS promoter (Roman et al, 2001).
The genes we are knocking down:
1) SERCA gene
2) Ryr gene
