Investigating the Effects of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms on Behavioral Phenotype in Drosophila melanogaster

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

I used the Drosophila Activity Monitor to perform sleep assays on 80 isogenic lines of Drosophila melanogaster. Each line has largely similar genetic makeup besides the Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms. After completing the assays, I performed statistical data analysis for notable sleep differences that can be further traced to their genome (sequenced by our Stanford collaborators) and analyzed for correlative and potentially causative relationships between genetic differences and altered sleep.
