Hot dogs and somatic mutagenicity in Drosphila Melanogaster
MetadataShow full item record
Dosophila Melanogaster is convenient and easy to handle in testing for mutagenic effects of chemicals. The reason is that the fly is easily cultured and its generation time is only two weeks at 21 degrees Celsius. ... The goal of this project was to analyze the mutagenic effects of nitrites in hot dogs by looking for induced somatic mutations and recombinations for the multi-wing hair (mwh) and flare (flr) genes on the wing blades.
