Comment: “This is a GGF print of over 72,000 bases including white space using sequence from FBgn0000179.Drosophila Melanogaster (fruit fly) >72,000 Flybase ref. FBgn0000179- includes Bifid gene This is a GGF print of over 72,000 bases including white space using sequence from FBgn0000179. Flybase entry for FBgn0000179 refers to the Bifid gene and quotes: “transcription factor brachyury T homolog involved in differentiation of the brain, the CNS, the wing and in patterning of adult abdominal segments promotes fold formation to separate wing notum and hinge territories” An article on the Bi gene referred to ‘venation of the wing’ – A paper on Drosophila Melanogaster -Waletzky -1938-Uni of Michigan refers to the Bi gene as follows: “Bifid, symbol bi, influences the venation of the wing. All the longitudinal veins are fused at the base of the wing, and the fourth longitudinal vein may fail to reach the margin. A notch may be present in the margin of the wing. The latter feature is very rarely present in the bifid stocks used in this experiment.””
