  • Dexterous robotic manipulation of alert adult Drosophila for high-content experimentation. Nature methods Savall, J., Ho, E. T., Huang, C., Maxey, J. R., Schnitzer, M. J. 2015; 12 (7): 657-660

    Abstract

    We present a robot that enables high-content studies of alert adult Drosophila by combining operations including gentle picking; translations and rotations; characterizations of fly phenotypes and behaviors; microdissection; or release. To illustrate, we assessed fly morphology, tracked odor-evoked locomotion, sorted flies by sex, and dissected the cuticle to image neural activity. The robot's tireless capacity for precise manipulations enables a scalable platform for screening flies' complex attributes and behavioral patterns.
