The Drosophila Resource Centre was set up in the Department of Biochemistry almost 10 years ago. The centre is funded by DBT Star College Project. It aims to teach the basic principles of genetics using Drosophila as model system. Around 250 students have been trained since its inception. Students from diﬀerent life science streams such as Botany, Biochemistry, Life Sciences and Zoology from DU and Punjab University have been trained at the centre. A lab manual onB‘Rediscovering Genetics’ was published in 2016. It covers the range of experiments performed by the students at the centre. The students have immensely benefited by this training which is reﬂected in their selection and perusal of higher education in genetics from prestigious places. The centre also provides stocks and support to many colleges of Delhi University and AIIMS.
