I work with whole-body expression of both GFP and DsRed in Drosophila, using it as an individual-level marker in fitness assays. This means I only need to know whether the fly is expressing it or not (as opposed to quantitative differences in expression level or localization). I can’t afford to outfit multiple scopes commercially for a very large assay we have coming. I have found several online resources for building your own detection system, or even simply using a laser pointer, all in worms. Has anyone done this in Drosophila? I'd love know and hear any tips.
