Munn, Bethany; Ericson, Brad; Carlson, Darby J.; Carlson, Kimberly A. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2015
A single fly RT-PCR protocol has recently been developed to detect the presence of the persistent, horizontally transmitted Nora virus in "Drosophila." Wild-caught flies from Ohio were tested for the presence of the virus, with nearly one-fifth testing positive. The investigation presented can serve as an ideal project for biology…
