Abstract

Cell death is ubiquitous in metazoans and involves the action of an evolutionarily conserved process known as programmed cell death or apoptosis. In Drosophila melanogaster, it is now uniquely possible to screen for genes that determine the fate — life or death — of any cell or population of cells during development and in the adult. This review describes these genetic approaches and the key insights into cell-death mechanisms that have been obtained, as well as the outstanding questions that these techniques can help to answer.
