Abstract

The Drosophila ovary represents a key in vivo model used to study germline stem cell (GSC) maintenance and stem cell daughter differentiation because these cells and their somatic cell neighbors can be identified at single-cell resolution within their native environment. Here we describe a fluorescent-based technique for the acquisition of 4D datasets of the Drosophila ovariole for periods that can exceed 12 consecutive hours. Live-cell imaging facilitates the investigation of molecular and cellular dynamics that were not previously possible using still images.
