Sensory input and photopreference

on Monday, September 11th, 2017 11:41 | by

To begin studying the sensory input related to photopreference shift after wing clipping, I decided to test some propioception mutants. Here are the first results.

Green: Intact flies

Yellow: Wing-clipped flies

Optogenetics and photopreference

on Monday, July 24th, 2017 10:39 | by

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.

This is something we talk last week. Here are the results for Speed and Stripe Deviation in the Buridan.

thf1 line from screen

This is the first line I completed from the screen. What it is more important is that I found out that NorpA;UAS-Chrimson has orange eyes, when it should be red. So I think I will start to do the line again and meanwhile test the contaminated line to see what the phenotype looks like

update on self learning test comparsion

30 from each lines, no statistially difference among them. I will keeping testing on flight simultor before transgenic flies hatch.
