The lab, presented by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, will familiarize you with the science and techniques used to make transgenic flies. Transgenic organisms, which contain DNA that is inserted experimentally, are used to study many biological processes. In this lab, you will create a transgenic fly to study circadian rhythms. This virtual lab requires that you have the Shockwave plug-in installed in your browser.
