This is a repeat of a posting originally sent to bionet.dros 3/26, but

Since it isn't obvious how non-melanogaster genes such as GAL4, FRT, GFP,
etc. will appear in a genotype, we use a comment string added to the genotype
to provide FlyBase-searchable common abbreviations.  In most cases (lacZ is
an exception), you can find stocks with a commonly used foreign gene or
sequence simply by searching for the typical symbol.  For example,

#2077 w[*]; P{w[+mC]=GAL4-Hsp70.PB}2/CyO  ! GAL4   
#1578 w[1118] P{ry[+t7.2]=neoFRT}18A  ! FRT 18-w 
#1929 y[*] w[*] P{ry[+t7.2]=hsFLP}12; CyO/noc[Sco]  ! FLP 
#1843 ovo[D2] v[24] P{w[+mW.hs]=>w[hs]>}9-2/C(1)DX, y[1] f[1]/Y;
      P{ry[+t7.2]=hsFLP}38  ! FRT, FLP
#1521 w[*]; P{UAS-GFP[[S65T]]}1010T[[2]]  ! UAS GFP

(#1521 is new and still in quarantine; it will be available in about 2 weeks.)
