Drosophila Genetic Engineering Service

Genetic engineering has changed the life sciences. Not only does it allow for targeted control of biological characteristics, but it also breaks down species boundaries and overcomes the incompatibility of distant hybridization. The perfect combination of genetic engineering and Drosophila will greatly contribute to your biomedical research. CD BioSciences is a pioneer in advanced genetic engineering technologies tailored to Drosophila to support your research.

Introduction to Genetic Engineering in Drosophila

Genetic engineering is the technique of recombining genes by knock-out, replacement or knock-in, which modifies organisms' genes in order to control their characteristics or create new organisms. Over the past few decades, genetic engineering has become an essential tool for researchers and is increasingly used in scientific research and production. Now it has a wide range of applications in medicine, drug development, and biology, etc.

With its short life cycle, simple genetic material, and phenotypic diversity, Drosophila is a widely used model organism that has helped many scientists win the Nobel Prize. In 2000, Drosophila's whole genome was sequenced, containing about 180 million base pairs encoding 13,600 genes, and in which 80% of human genes can be found as homologs. Therefore,Drosophila is also a great model for genetic engineering research.

Application of Genetic Engineering in Drosophila

Drosophila genetic engineering research has a broad usage in fundamental research and drug management, for example:

  • Genetics and evolution research
  • Metabolism research
  • Development and cell biology research
  • Neuroscience research
  • Insect management research
  • Drug discovery
