The tests were conducted on 23 November, 27th November, and 29th November 2023. 8 tests were done for each pink and green line; hence a total of 16 tests were conducted. A total of 273 flies and 233 flies were tested for pink line and green line respectively.

Here I tested two common OA drivers in photopreference. Although the results are not conclusive, there could be something there.

Yellow: 25°C

Green: 32°C

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

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.

Optogenetics in Photopreference (Pretests)

On this opportunity, I changed the size of the tubes in order to see if that has a impact on the proportion of flies that ended in the elevator.
