LAB: TRANSGENIC FLY VIRTUAL Lexie Coons The purpose of the transgenic fly virtual lab was for us to understand how construct and transpose DNA are used in producing a transgenic organism, practice (through virtual procedures using a computer mouse) the steps for selecting and inserting DNA into fly embryos, identify the steps used in producing a transgenic organism, and utilize transgenic organisms to understand gene expression, specifically through experimentation with fly circadian rhythm. This virtual lab is an animated tutorial that is used to help participants become familiar with sophisticated lab procedures and learn how to make a transgenic organism. By following steps in the virtual lab, participants learn about construct and transpose DNA, how these are used to make a transgenic organism, and experiments that can be performed on transgenic organisms to understand gene expression. Participants will learn that a DNA construct is an artificially constructed segment of nucleic acid that is going to be "transplanted" into a
