COLLECTING FRUITFLIES. González lab fieldtrip to Italy.

We have created a video about our field trip to Italy to collect samples of the fruitfly Drosophila melanogaster. This was the first data that I collected as an independent researcher and it was possible thanks to a Marie Curie Career Integration Grant and the video has been funded by a Marie Curie Alumni Association Micro Media Grant. My lab is being build around this data so with this video we would like to stress the importance of field trips for biological research. The video shows how fruitflies are collected in nature. We would like to start a citizen science initiative in which students will help us collect flies at different geographical locations and send them to our lab for further analysis. We hope that this video will help to train students online.

IBE offers schools the opportunity to visit our Institute and to learn about the research projects that we are currently developing.  This opportunity is offered in coordination with the PRBB communication department. Read more.






This year IBE participates for the first time in the Science Week activities. The Science Week activities aim at bringing the challenges and excitement of the world of science to the general public. For a couple of days, IBE opened its laboratories to citizens to show them what we do, how we do it, and why we do it. Read more.
