Genes in fruit flies
Images showing which genes are active in fruit flies. The red in each image indicates which genes were turned on when the tissues were collected. The green shows which genes had been active earlier. The top row of the full image (not visible on the UCLA Newsroom page) shows brains of fruit flies. The second row shows the development of the eye, and which genes are turned on. The third row shows the wing, and the genes that are turned on. The bottom row shows the active genes in the lymph gland.
