Unwinding the genetic clock

Researchers at the Institute of Entomology (ENTU) in the Czech Republic are studying insect circadian clocks and have used Tecan’s Infinite® M1000 plate reader to automate hourly luminescence measurement of transgenic Drosophila. Automation enables large-scale screens of mutant Drosophila strains to be performed, involving hundreds of measurements over a period of up to two weeks.
