I am researching the cost of setting for micro-injecting Drosophila
eggs, e.g. for P-element transformations. I have been spoiled as a
postdoc with rather expensive set ups and would like to know the least
expensive way to go. In particular, Is there a recommended minimal
microscope, mechanical stage, and micromanipulator set up. How about
needle pullers? what's the cheapest that will work ?
Any advice or recommendations for references would be appreciated.
