Drosophila, Living, F1 apterous x sepia Cross, Vial of 50–70



Product Details
This culture includes F1 fruit flies from a cross between wingless red-eyed (apterous) female flies and winged sepia-eyed (sepia) male flies. The expected F2 ratio is 9 wild type:3 apterous:3 sepia:1 apterous sepia.

Our Drosophila F1 cultures make it easy to study crosses because we deliver exactly what you need. Each vial contains larvae and pupae of the F1 generation of a cross between 2 different strains of Drosophila. (The parent generation is removed before shipment.) For a complete guide on maintaining and studying Drosophila, including how to culture, anesthetize, and score them, and the genetic notations, consider our Carolina® Drosophila Manual (item #452620).

Note: Please order at least 2 weeks in advance of desired ship date. When culture arrives, remove caps but leave plugs in place. Keep cultures out of sunlight and maintain at 68–77° F (20–25° C).

  • Shipped as larvae and pupae
