OpenHelix

A resource for the genes, genome and molecular biology of Drosophila melanogaster and related species.

Tutorial and training materials by OpenHelix

Learn to use FlyBase, the primary resource for molecular and genetic information on the Drosophilidae. The essential database for researchers working with the Fruit Fly, FlyBase, provides tools for genetic and proteomic analysis, numerous search tools, sequence data, gene information, and data mining tools. This website, also provides easy access to BLAST, GBrowse, QueryBuilder, TermLink and ImageBrowse. Large Data queries can also be handled with Batch Download options.

You'll learn:

  • to perform Quick Searches and navigate gene summary pages
  • to browse genetic features within the context of the entire chromosome
  • to construct complex queries across various sets of data stored within FlyBase
  • to perform nucleotide or amino acid sequence homology searches
