The Department of Genetics Fly Facility is one of the largest in Europe, and offers a range of services to Drosophila researchers both within and outside Cambridge.
Our Drosophila microinjection service is available to fly researchers throughout the European Union. We can inject flies for P-element/piggyback transformation, phiC31-mediated transgenesis, CRISPR/TALEN genome engineering and other experiments. We also provide screening and balancing services.
Our fly-pushing services are primarily aimed at UK fly researchers. We are happy to discuss the researcher's needs for fly-pushing (screening, stock construction, etc). Costs for fly-pushing services are arrived at by negotiation between the researcher and the Fly Facility.
- To inquire about our fly-pushing services, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Drosophila Stock-Keeping Service
Our Drosophila stock-keeping service is available to UK fly researchers. We will maintain your Drosophila stock collection and will ship your stocks to any location worldwide.
