FlyMine and modENCODE Demonstrations – Virginia A-B
FlyMine is an integrated database of genomics and proteomics data for Drosophila and other insects. modENCODE
(model organism ENCyclopedia Of DNA Elements) is a project designed to identify all of the sequence-based functional
elements in D. melanogaster and C. elegans. The modMine database uses the same underlying software as FlyMine
(InterMine) to provide a query interface to data from the modENCODE project. Come and see us to find out how you
can easily run a range of diverse queries across these databases, construct your own data mining queries, upload and
analyze your own experimental results and view and download large datasets from the modENCODE project.
Talks will take place daily, Thursday through Saturday, at the following times:
1:30 pm-1:50 pm:

The computers in the session rooms will be Windows XP based PC with Microsoft PowerPoint 2007. Verification of proper
performance in the Speaker Ready Room (Park Tower, Suite 8216) is essential, particularly if video and animation is
included in the presentation. Please note that Internet access will not be available during your presentation.
Preparing Your Presentation
New This Year: Speakers will receive an e-mail from PSAV that will include a link and individual login credentials to
submit their presentations online prior to the start of the meeting.
Acceptable formats for presentations:
s0OWER0OINTPPTPPTX
s!DOBE!CROBATPDF
s&LASHSWF
Macintosh Users: Please make sure that all inserted pictures are either JPEG or PNG file-types. QuickTime (.mov) files
are also an accepted video format. Individuals using Apple Keynote should take their files directly to the Speaker Ready
Room to have them correctly transferred to our system.
Laptops: Personal laptops cannot be used in the session rooms. You must load your files via the Speaker Ready
Room. However, support is available in the Speaker Ready Room for file transfers from your laptop. You should still bring
a backup of the presentation on alternate media (see list of acceptable formats above). Please make sure you have all
power, video, and networking adapters with you.
During Your Presentation
Each session room will be staffed with an AV technician who will assist in starting each presentation. Once the
presentation is launched, the presenter will control the program from the podium using a computer mouse or the up/
down/right/left keys on a keyboard.
How to Submit Your Presentation
Advance Submission: Presenters will be able to submit their files via the Web and will receive their login credentials via
e-mail. Online submission of your presentation files via Internet is not required, but is strongly encouraged. Presenters
who send in their presentation files via the Web site will have faster check in at the Speaker Ready Room. Please make
sure to upload all media files required for your presentation. Any videos, sounds, or fonts not included in your online
upload folder will cause your presentation to fail in the meeting room.
On-site Submission: Check in at the Speaker Ready Room preferably the day before your session to submit your files
and to preview your presentation. If checking in on the day of your session, please come by at least 4 hours prior to the
start of your session (note: this refers to the session start time, not the presentation start time). The PSAV technicians will
assist with the upload of your files and provide the opportunity to preview and/or edit the presentation as necessary.
Take a Backup: Be sure to take a backup copy of your presentation with you to the meeting. If you plan to upload files
on site, bring two copies.

PowerPoint Tips
Video Formats: The recommended video format for Windows-based presentations is Windows Media (.wmv). For more
detailed information regarding fonts, sound, video, and general compatibility, refer to http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/
powerpoint/FX100648971033.aspx. Using one of the codec’s from the following list will ensure proper performance:
Microsoft - RLE, Video1, Windows Media Series 8 and 9
Divx 3/4/5
Intel Indeo Video <= v.5.11
TechSmith Screen Capture Codec
Huffyuv Lossless Codec
Asus Video Codec, On2VP3,
ATI VCR and YV12 Codecs
Cinepak, MJPEG
There is a trade-off between high quality videos and large files. Use short video segments when needed, and try to keep
the file to less than 20 MB.
PowerPoint embeds image files directly into the file when you save them, while video files are not embedded. Only a
link is made to the video file. Copy the video clips you want to insert into the same folder as the PowerPoint file. This will
eliminate the problem of PowerPoint losing the link to the file. Be certain to bring the video files and the PowerPoint files
to the meeting.
Fonts: Arial and Helvetica are recommended for clarity and compatibility. Confirm a font size of AT LEAST
24 points for body text and 36 – 40 points for headings. Light colored text on a dark background is advised.
Avoid using red or green. Confirm that the maximum number of lines in text slides is no more than 6 or 7.
Images: The size of the screen will be 1024 x 768 pixels, meaning that any image with more pixels in the X or Y
coordinate that is more than that will not be displayed. The image will be altered by PowerPoint to fit. Large images
(i.e. 2000 x 1500 pixels) which are created with digital cameras and scanners will make the resulting PowerPoint file
very large. This may cause the presentation to load slowly. This can be avoided by inserting images with the following
properties:
1. For on-screen presentations, JPEG-type images work well. This type of image file can be created with virtually all
imaging programs.
2. There are many graphics programs, which can manipulate images. Consult the manual for more specific instructions
if needed. Using a graphics program:
a. Change the size of the image to approximately 800 x 600 pixels
b. Save as file type “JPEG” or “JPG”
c. Select compression setting of 8 (High quality image)
3. Insert all images into PowerPoint as JPEG files.
If you copy the images to the clipboard and then Edit / Paste them into PowerPoint, the images will not be
compressed and the PowerPoint file can become very large. To avoid this, insert them directly into PowerPoint
(Insert / Picture / from File).
Animations
Keep animations to a minimum. When using a bulleted list of points, it may be useful to have the points appear.

DEATH MECHANISMS
Room:
Marriott Ballroom Salon 2
Organizers: Andreas Bergmann, MD Anderson
Cancer Center, Eli Arama,
Weizmann Institute, Israel, and
Michael Brodsky, University of
Massachusetts Medical School
This workshop is dedicated to promoting the use of
Drosophila in the modern regimen of toxicological testing.
The growing demand for high throughput, high information
content and low cost toxicity assays in the arenas of
environmental chemical toxicology and drug development
has turned considerable attention to application of small
organism models. Use of Drosophila in toxicity testing
is a direct response to the call for a paradigm shift to
mechanism-based approaches jointly proposed by the
EPA, National Toxicology Program (NTP) and National
Institute of Health Chemical Genomics Center (NCGC).
Presentations will highlight current examples Drosophilabased toxicological studies and discussions will center
on gaining acceptance of Drosophila as a valid model for
mainstream mechanism-based toxicity studies.
This workshop is a forum for the discussion of cell death
mechanisms in Drosophila. Apoptosis is the most widely
recognized form of cell death in development. However,
there is increasing awareness that alternative cell death
mechanisms exist. Autophagy has emerged as an
important pathway for cell death during metamorphosis.
Other non-apoptotic forms of cell death (Entosis,
Necrosis) have also been described. The workshop
is intended to highlight recent advances in cell death
research and to foster communication and collaboration
between individuals working in the field. Topics will
include all aspects of cell death regulation for Drosophila
biology.

IMAGE ANALYSIS FOR DROSOPHILA RESEARCH
Room:
Marriott Ballroom Salon 1
Organizers: Pavel Tomancak, MPI-CBG,
Dresden, and Uwe Ohler, Duke
University, Durham, North Carolina
Most primary data in biology, especially concerning
phenotypes, are in the form of images. In recent years, the
volume of image data has increased dramatically through
high-throughput and high-resolution technologies and
quantitative image analysis techniques without human
intervention became indispensable for interpreting these
datasets. In this workshop, we will highlight advances in
image analysis on Drosophila data ranging from gene
expression patterns in fixed samples, through electron
microscopy of the brain, to 3d and 4d live imaging. We
also aim to provide an overview of custom image analysis
tools available to Drosophila research community.

The development of multicellular organisms depends on
strict temporal and spatial regulation of cell proliferation
patterns. In this workshop, we will focus on the regulation
of several important aspects of cell proliferation in
development. The topics will include: 1. Development
signals that promote cell proliferation or cell cycle exit. 2.
Cell cycle variations and their regulation in development.
3. Cell competition and compensatory proliferation.

INSECT EVODEVO
Room:
Marriott Ballroom Salon 1
Organizer:
Markus Friedrich, Wayne State
University, Detroit, Michigan
Drosophila is one of the most important molecular genetic
systems for elucidating generic mechanisms of animal
development. The gene regulatory networks, however,
which organize Drosophila body plan development
and organ formation, have diverse evolutionary roots.
Comparative developmental studies in other insect
species (insect evodevo) are essential for inferring the
evolutionary origins of Drosophila development. The
workshop will focus on developmental key studies in

AUTOMATED TRACKING OF DROSOPHILA
BEHAVIOR
Room:
Organizers:
Marriott Ballroom Salon 2
Tim Lebestky, California Institute of
Technology, Pasadena, California,
Andrew Straw, California Institute
of Technology, Pasadena, California,
and Kristin Branson, Janelia Farm
Research Campus (HHMI)
The goal of this workshop is to introduce the tools
and methodologies used for automated tracking and
quantification of Drosophila behaviors. For those
interested in questions of neural function, circuitry, and
behavior, the use of these quantitative tools can facilitate
both new avenues of behavioral research and a deeper
understanding of phenotypic data. We will highlight the
existing software that is publicly available, and provide a
hands-on forum to see live hardware demos, and discuss
the techniques and equipment that would be required to
facilitate tracking experiments.
SATURDAY, APRIL 10 9:30 pm–11:30 pm
GASES IN DROSOPHILA PHYSIOLOGY AND
DEVELOPMENT
Room:
Marriott Ballroom Salon 3
Organizers: Dan Zhou, University of California,
San Diego, and Greg Beitel,
Northwestern University, Evanston,
Illinois
Gases including O2, NO and CO2 play critical roles in
physiology and development. Presenters in this workshop
will detail investigations of these roles as well as the
molecular mechanisms by which the concentrations of
specific gases are sensed and transduced to cellular
processes.

FLYBASE GENETIC INDEX TO ABSTRACTS
This is an index of genes mentioned in the abstracts. The current FlyBase-approved
gene symbol is given in each case; non-current symbol synonyms or full names used
in the abstracts are not indexed.
The index was prepared computationally by FlyBase, based solely on the FBgn & gene
symbol information provided by authors during abstract submission. We have performed
a cross-check between the FBgn and gene symbol provided to ensure we have indexed
the intended gene. However, FlyBase is not responsible for any omissions from the
index where authors did not provide information, nor for any incorrect indexing where
genes were stated to feature in an abstract but do not actually do so.
Indexed terms are in bold. Numbers following each term refer to abstract program
numbers: 1–156 are platform presentations and 157–839 are poster presentations.
