Alcohol Tolerance in Drosophila Kit

Students investigate the relationship among a recessive gene (Adhâˆ'), its enzyme product (alcohol dehydrogenase, ADH), and the resulting phenotype. ADH-negative mutants cannot break down the ethanol they consume, leading to intoxication and, ultimately, death from alcohol poisoning.

Students make observations over a 24-hr period, requiring them to take flies home overnight. For 8 groups of up to 4 students each; requires 2—3 class periods to complete. Flies must be subcultured before beginning the activity.
Hands-on experience with Mendelian genetics!
