For decades, researchers have used Drosophila melanogaster as a model for developing and applying cutting-edge genetic approaches. These have helped scientists understand complex biological processes at the molecular, cellular, and organismal levels. The CRISPR-Cas system has made genome engineering much more accessible, ushering even greater potential for this model organism.

This Technique Talk will explore how researchers apply CRISPR-Cas in Drosophila and the insights that they have gained. It will also discuss the challenges of using CRISPR in Drosophila and address cross-translatability between Drosophila techniques and other model species.

Learning Objectives

  • Genome engineering in Drosophila melanogaster
  • Technical considerations when choosing an engineering approach
  • Transferring Drosophila techniques to other species
