Celebrating 200 th birthday of Gregor Johann mendel
As a part of mendel’s day celebration ,we also come across some interesting discussion started from earthworm to Fruitflymodel system !!!
@Misbah cubists from elphinstone college ,did a interesting work related to regeneration of earthworm .
For that she used a plastic cup with moist tissue paper .
For regeneration study ,she cut the 20 th segment from the tail .She noticed that after 2 weeks the head and tail were regenerating .
we also discussed about the species ‘Eisenia fetida’ ,in that the clitellum is located at the 23 to 27 th segment from head .
Then we talked about the T.H Morgan work on earthworm regeneration !!!
Did T.H morgan work with both earthworm and Fruitfly !!
We all heard that T.H morgan awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1933,with his discovery of the white-eyed mutation in the fruit fly.
Then we all reach a situation introduced by @Arunan that "What you would have done if you are in Morgan’s place!!!
As this special day ,we all of us can became T.H Morgan and think about that !!!
We collaboratively come across that ,if we got one white eye mutant male Fruitfly ,We will Transfer the white male Fruitfly with one virgin red female Fruitfly( Normal eye colour in Drosophila melanogastor) .
Suppose ,After 10 days :
there are 60 Fruitfly ,out of which ,
a)20 white eyed flies ,in which all are male .
b)40 red eyed flies ,in which having both male and female .
Then what will be our next step!!!
