Here, a peripodial-specific Gal4 drives tau-GFP expression (Gibson and Schubiger, 2000).
The non-transparency of the early Drosophila embryos makes it difficult to image the earliest cell cycles.
GFP-tagged histone allows us to analyse nuclear movement as early as cycle 4.
In these films from ~1970, Gerold teaches how to culture imaginal discs in fly hosts.
