A Resource on Indian-Drosophila

Click here to edit subtitle


Indian-Drosophila is a resource on Indian Drosophila ecology and evolution. It covers details on taxonomic status, clinal variations, and distribution of Indian drosophilids. The material presented here on this portal is either published in various scientific journals or contributed by Drosophila research community.

Ongoing Projects:


  • revisiting classic clines
  • mDNA analysis
  • pooled genome resequencing
