About this book

A massive attempt to provide a summary of the practice of Drosophila genetics and biology. It is not a textbook, nor a comprehensve account of the biology and genetics of the drosophila, but rather a tome concerning experimental methods, both genetic and otherwise; in other words, a methodological compendium. The second edition has been completely updated to reflect advances in techniques and knowledge.
