Learn to use FlyBase, the primary resource for molecular and genetic information on the Drosophilidae. The essential database for researchers working with the Fruit Fly, FlyBase, provides tools for genetic and proteomic analysis, numerous search tools, sequence data, gene information, and data mining tools. This website, also provides easy access to BLAST, GBrowse, QueryBuilder, TermLink and ImageBrowse. Large Data queries can also be handled with Batch Download options.

Friday SNPpets: This week's SNPpets illustrate that everyone's back in the saddle after the holidays with plenty of chatter. New and updated databases, tools, and other news abound. The financial threat to well known ...
Friday SNPpets: This week's SNPpets include quite a range of things. New species genomes projects (pineapple is out, bauhinia being crowdfunded). I dare you to resist a tool called "Time Curves". The pre-print on ove...

Tip of the Week: FlyBase: I have a soft spot for Flybase. My Ph.D. work used Drosophila and I've used Drosophila species to teach after that. Something about Dipteran genetics fascinates me. FlyBase is also one of the older g...
