Methods. 2014 Jun 15;68(1):74-81. doi: 10.1016/j.ymeth.2014.01.006. Epub 2014 Jan 13.


We review the properties and uses of cell lines in Drosophila research, emphasizing the variety of lines, the large body of genomic and transcriptional data available for many of the lines, and the variety of ways the lines have been used to provide tools for and insights into the developmental, molecular, and cell biology of Drosophila and mammals.

Keywords: Cell lines; Drosophila; Transcriptome; Transformation.
