Online resources

The following hyperlinks and files are additional resources that pertain to research topics in the LaRocque Lab:

Genomic, molecular biology, and general resources:

  • PubMed. NIH-sponsored database of more than 21 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites.
  • DNA Repair Interest Group. This NIH-sponsored group contains useful links, literature, seminars, workshops, job opportunities, and a database of webcasts all pertaining to the field of DNA repair.
  • Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes. This resource contains genome analyses, including KEGG Pathway maps, which illustrates some common biological pathways, including DNA Repair and Replication.
  • Primer3. Widely-used primer design program for Polymerase Chain Reaction

Drosophila Resources:

  • Flybase. This website contains information pertaining to the Drosophila genome, including genes, alleles, stocks, reagents, and other databases.
  • Drosophila Genome Resource Center. The DGRC’s mission is to provide databases, reagents (including cell lines, vectors and microarrays) to the Drosophila research community. It also contains some helpful protocols.
  • Berkley Drosophila Genome Project. This work focuses on annotation of the Drosophila genome, offering a variety of resources for Drosophila researchers.
  • The Interactive Fly. A cyberspace guide to Drosophila development
    and metazoan evolution.
  • FlyMove. FlyMove is an internet resource to study the development of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, aimed at university students and teachers of developmental biology classes. This is a great resource to understanding the biology behind this model organism.
  • Bloomington Stock Center. Maintains and distributes cultures of over 38,000 Drosophila strains, stocks, and alleles.
  • Common Drosophila Phenotype Markers. Website with images of common Drosophila mutations and the resulting phenotype, compared to wild-type fly images.
  • Drosophila Genetics Tutorial. This is a great handbook for anyone that is beginning work using Drosophila genetics. The link above includes an interactive PowerPoint presentation and also the original publication in GSA’s G3 journal.
