This series of laboratory exercises engages students in the scholarship of discovery by having them conduct a deficiency screen to identify genes affecting Drosophila female fertility. Students are also introduced to bioinformatics as they use FlyBase to identify genes within a deficiency region and develop hypotheses regarding specific gene effects on female sperm storage.
