Abstract

Germ cells in Drosophila form in a specialized cytoplasm that is critical for germ-cell development. Several genes involved in this process have been identified. By studying the temporal and functional sequence of interactions between their products, these genes can be ordered into a pathway for germ-plasm formation.
