Summary:
How has diversity of organismal morphs and life styles evolved? Drosophila (fruit fly) combines phenotypic diversity and technical advantages for experimental investigations. Using Drosophila species with various pigmentation patterns on their wings, we investigate gene expressions and functions by trangenesis and genome editing, and try to discover mechanisms of pattern formation and evolution. We aim for a general understanding of Drosophila biology ranging from its life history to evolution of gene regulation.
