Drosophila L3 larval midgut of the LexA enhancer trap StanExHS-2 expressing the lexAop-CD8::GFP reporter in tracheal cells (green). The StanEx LexA enhancer trap collection was generated by D2-3 driven hybrid dysgenesis of the StanEx1 index P-element. It encodes a fusion of the bacterial LexA DNA binding domain with the hinge and transcriptional activator domain of Gal4 and is sensitive to local transcriptional enhancer activity. The StanEx collection resulted from collaboration between the lab of Prof. Seung Kim at the Developmental Biology Department at Stanford University School of Medicine and the Bio470 genetics and molecular biology class at the Science Department of the Exeter Academy coeducational boarding and day school. In this course, students not only learn about genetics, they do genetics hands on, with a tangible outcome for the scientific community. See Kockel et al., pp 3017–3026.
