The eternal tumour trick

Various media channels have commented on a study published in Nature Protocols by Fabrizio Rossi, postdoctoral fellow at IRB Barcelona, and Cayetano González, ICREA researcher and group leader of the Cell division laboratory. The study addresses a recovered technique for tissue transplants in Drosophila. This method was originally invented in 1935, but had fallen into misuse. The article describes the materials, equipment, and approaches required to implement the protocol quickly and effectively and provides links to videos illustrating each step.
