Experimental approaches include fly genetics, imaging techniques, and numerous molecular and biochemical experiments. For our genetic, molecular, cell and biochemical investigations we developed a number of tools, such as mutants for gene deletion, knock down and ectopic expression, antibodies recognizing specific proteins, and numerous GFP/GST/His-tagged proteins for performing Life imaging and biochemical pull down assays.
