  • After an initial test, the MTD for each mutant Drosophila line was determined. The majority of mutant lines exhibit a MTD of 4 days postinfection and the most extreme phenotypes observed were 1 and 7 days postinfection. Mutants exhibiting the most extreme phenotypes were flagged for further testing to eliminate false positives.
