Drosophila Transgenesis Service


Drosophila Transgenesis Service


The Drosophila Transgenesis service was created in 2008 within the Consolider Project “From Genes to Shape” with the aim of simplifying and saving on an essential technique to any Drosophila research line.

Our team is made up of highly qualified professionals with more than ten years of experience in transgenesis of Drosophila.

After the first years of positive results, other groups that did not belong to the Consolider Project began to show an interest in this service, so it was extended to all those interested, both within Spain as abroad.

The service has evolved significantly and offers:

  • Random insertion in yw or w strains
  • PhiC31 integrase-mediated transgenesis
  • Genome Engineering CRISPR transformation services

The key of our success features:

  1. Efficiency: Since the service began, approximately 2000 DNA constructs have been injected with a transgenic success of more than 98%.
  2. Speed: It takes between 5 and 9 days from receipt of the DNA sample until the delivery of the injected larvae.
  3. Low cost: Very competitive pricing compared to other services.

Therefore the key to our success is based on efficiency as well as speed and low cost.

We currently collaborate with more than 20 groups in Spain and 10 groups in Great Britan, Germany, France and Portugal.
