"Oogenesis is the process by which an egg is formed and matures. Pole plasm assembly is necessary for the formation of germ cells, immortal cells that are needed for gonad formation, which are necessary for sexual reproduction. Drosophila oogenesis provides an excellent system to study processes conserved in many different metazoan species. Pole plasm assembly also provides insight on the formation
of stem cells."
(Dr. Paul Lasko)
