Fruit flies (Drosophila) offer you a wealth of hands-on options for teaching genetics. Students can easily study the sex-linked, recessive, and dominant mutations. Drosophila yields many flies from just one vial of media. Chromosome 1 Mutants (sex-linked) are easy-to-score strains which are excellent for beginning genetics. These are recommended also for investigating sex-linked inheritance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful but have to be careful when culturing I have used these miniature mutants several times for X-linked crosses with the white eyed mutants. The crosses work out fine and you can analyze the males in the F2 for the map distance between the two genes. If you culture these miniatures, however, you have to be aware that getting the balance of the right amount of water and media is not trivial. If the media gets even just a little bit soupy, these flies will drown. You have to err on the side of dry media first, then add water as you need to and always a little at a time. I've had times where everything seemed fine and a day later, there were a bunch of dead flies trapped in the top layer of the media.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product has great educational features. I used this product in a lab that I was teaching. It was very easy for the students to use. As this phenotype is very easily scored via visual observation. Wow…my students also loved that this was a rather fun phenotype to look at. We also had great success with using this strain to create other mutant strains in the lab. For example apricot-lozenge eyes colour/facet shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value The flies arrive in a vial with Carolina's blue medium. The vial contained drosophila at various stages, mostly a mixture of adults and larvae, which was exactly what we needed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from the Bar allele was reverted In the fall of 2013, I ordered yellow, Bar only to observe that the Bar allele had reverted. Many males had wild type eyes and females with incomplete Bar eyes, yet all flies were yellow. I resorted to purifying the stock myself with some rather simple crosses. In the spring of 2013, I reordered this fly stock only to see the same issue. Moreover, other fly stocks contained MITES! CAROLINA NEEDS TO IMPROVE THEIR QUALITY CONTROL!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good vigorous cultures Cultures arrived in great shape, lots of healthy offspring hatching. Shipped early in the week following my late Wed. afternoon order so that cultures didn't freeze in shipping warehouse over the weekend - (even with 2-day shipping, delay needs to be considered).
