Fly Enhancers @ Stark Lab

The Fly Enhancers resource assesses the in vivo activity of 7793 enhancer candidates (tiles), which cover about 13.5% of the entire non-coding, non-repetitive Drosophila melanogaster genome, across embryonic stages 4 to 16. Enhancer activity patterns were recorded by whole slide imaging of ~400 embryos of various stages per enhancer candidate and enhancer activity was manually annotated with a controlled vocabulary. It is the largest collection of transcriptional enhancers characterized across the entire embryogenesis of any metazoan organism (see Methods).

Transgenic Drosophila lines corresponding to each of the tiles are available for ordering through the Vienna Drosophila Resource Center (VDRC).
