    • Molecular characterization of the singed wingslocus of Drosophila melanogaster 

      Schwartz, Yuir B; Boykova, Tatiana V; Belyaeva, Elena S; Ashburner, Michael; Zhimulev, Igor (2004-06-09)
      Abstract Background Hormones frequently guide animal development via the induction of cascades of gene activities, whose products further amplify an initial hormonal stimulus. In Drosophila the transformation of the larva ...
    • An ontology for cell types 

      Ashburner, Michael; Bard, Jonathan; Rhee, Seung Y (2005-01-14)
      Abstract We describe an ontology for cell types that covers the prokaryotic, fungal, animal and plant worlds. It includes over 680 cell types. These cell types are classified under several generic categories and are organized ...
    • Principles of genome evolution in the Drosophila melanogaster species group. 

      Ranz, JM; Maurin, D; Chan, YS; von, Grotthuss M; Hillier, LW; Roote, John; Ashburner, Michael et al. (Public Library of Science, 2007-06-05)
      The organization of genes on chromosomes changes over evolutionary time. In some organisms, such as fruit flies and mosquitoes, inversions of chromosome regions are widespread. This has been associated with adaptation to ...
    • Recurrent insertion and duplication generate networks of transposable element sequences in the Drosophila melanogastergenome 

      Bergman, Casey M; Quesneville, Hadi; Anxolabehere, Dominique; Ashburner, Michael (2006-11-29)
      Abstract Background The recent availability of genome sequences has provided unparalleled insights into the broad-scale patterns of transposable element (TE) sequences in eukaryotic genomes. Nevertheless, the difficulties ...
    • The ribosomal protein genes and Minuteloci of Drosophila melanogaster 

      Marygold, Steven Jon; Roote, John; Reuter, Gunter; Lambertsson, Andrew; Ashburner, Michael; Millburn, Gillian Helen; Harrison, Paul et al. (2007-10-10)
      Abstract Background Mutations in genes encoding ribosomal proteins (RPs) have been shown to cause an array of cellular and developmental defects in a variety of organisms. In Drosophila melanogaster, disruption of RP genes ...
    • The Sequence Ontology: a tool for the unification of genome annotations 

      Eilbeck, Karen; Lewis, Suzanna E; Mungall, Christopher J; Yandell, Mark D; Stein, Lincoln; Durbin, Richard Michael; Ashburner, Michael (2005-04-29)
      Abstract The Sequence Ontology (SO) is a structured controlled vocabulary for the parts of a genomic annotation. SO provides a common set of terms and definitions that will facilitate the exchange, analysis and management ...
    • The transposable elements of the Drosophila melanogaster 

      Kaminker, Joshua S.; Bergman, Casey M.; Kronmiller, Brent; Carlson, Joseph; Svirskas, Robert; Patel, Sandeep; Frise, Erwin et al. (BioMed Central Ltd, 2002-12-23)
      Background: Transposable elements are found in the genomes of nearly all eukaryotes. The recent completion of the Release 3 euchromatic genomic sequence of Drosophila melanogaster by the Berkeley Drosophila Genome Project ...
    • The transposable elements of the Drosophila melanogaster euchromatin: a genomics perspective 

      Kaminker, Joshua S; Bergman, Casey M; Kronmiller, Brent; Carlson, Joseph; Svirskas, Robert; Patel, Sandeep; Frise, Erwin et al. (2002-12-23)
      Abstract Background Transposable elements are found in the genomes of nearly all eukaryotes. The recent completion of the Release 3 euchromatic genomic sequence of Drosophila melanogaster by the Berkeley Drosophila Genome ...
