Biochemical Aspects of Drosophila

By Herschel K. Mitchell


Modern biochemistry has so far encountered no phylogenetic boundaries in terms of fundamental principles of molecular biology and, in this sense, it is archaic to review only Drosophila biochemistry. However, operationally\ud Drosophila occupies a unique position as biological material useful for the solution of general problems because of the large numbers of mutants and species available, the favorable life cycle and culture conditions, and the very extensive literature describing chromosomes and chromosomal manipulations. That increasingly active exploitation of this large reservoir of material and information is in progress, is evident from recent literature and, in general, only a selected portion of the most recent literature is covered here. Particular emphasis is given to biochemical aspects having to do with the nature of gene functions and gene products
