Abstract

The classical technique of mutational screen for identification of genes controlling early development has now approached saturation. A new era in genetic identification and developmental characterization of genes in Drosophila has commenced with the advent of the enhancer trap technique. This technique involves mobilization of a P-lacZ vector to diverse chromosomal locations in the fruit fly genome to bring it under the regulation of developmentally expressed genes or their enhancer elements. The technique offers a strikingly elegant method of gaining entry into fruit fly genes.
