I am still trying to set up the optogenetics tools for my photopreference assay. These are the results so far. I combined the result obtained with Chrimson in the second chromosome and in the X chromosome, because they were identical.
Blue: only blue light.
Red: Blue light + pulsed red light.
I think Chrimson is already activated under my blue light condition.
Here, I present you the results of using Blue light for photopreference and adding a pulsed Red light. These experiments are controls required for using Optogenetics to study Photopreference. I used the Blue light at different intensities, and calculated the Choice Index (CI) and the proportion of flies in each tube of the T-Maze (White: Bright, Black: Dark, Grey: Elevator).
