Lists of Minos-based insertions selected by the Gene Disruption Project (GDP) can be found under the links below. For most insertions mapped to the sequence, the cytology is estimated using the FlyBase Cytological<==>Sequence map conversion table.

Chromosome 1 2 3 4

Stock carrying Minos transposase
24613   w[1118]; noc[Sco]/SM6a, P{hsILMiT}2.4   
General information

- Schematics for these insertions can be found at the GDP website.

- Markers:
Mi{ET1} - EGFP is the only scoreable marker carried by Mi{ET1}. The construct is not marked with white, yellow, rosy or any other visible marker.
Mi{MIC} - Mi{MIC} is marked with y[+mDint2]

- Background:
The Mi{ET1} insertions were generated in the same genetic background as the DrosDel Project insertions and deletions. DrosDel starter stocks can be used to manipulate these Minos stocks while retaining the isogenic background. The Mi{MIC} insertions are in a different (undefined) background.

- Inverse PCR protocols and primers are available from the Gene Disruption Project web site.
