Abstract

A vast diversity of biological systems, ranging from prokaryotes to multicellular organisms, show cell migration behavior. Many of the basic cellular and molecular concepts in cell migration apply to diverse model organisms. Drosophila, with its vast repertoire of tools for imaging and for manipulation, is one of the favorite organisms to study cell migration. Moreover, distinct Drosophila tissues and organs offer diverse cell migration models that are amenable to live imaging and genetic manipulations. In this review, we will provide an overview of the fruit fly toolbox that is of particular interest for the analysis of cell migration. We provide examples to highlight how those tools were used in diverse migration systems, with an emphasis on tracheal morphogenesis, a process that combines morphogenesis with cell migration.
