Purpose of this website
Contents for beginners of Drosophila genetics
"Introduction to Drosophila" was established as sources of information for Drosophila beginners especially students. It will be useful, when you reading a Drosophila paper for the first time, and when you cross fruit flies by lesson. Of course, "Introduction to Drosophila" content hints to those who want to keep fruit flies with a hobby.
The contents will lighten teachers' burden
Another purpose is to reduce teachers' burden of work. "Introduction to Drosophila" is primary contents taught to fresh students every year. It will be easy to study for students, if a textbook is on web (They can use tablet-type devices efficiently!).
