About this work
An illustration of the role of the bicoid and oskar genes in defining the anterior/posterior axis in a developing Drosophila embryo. The image shows the locaoisation of bicoid mRNA (black) and oskar mRNA (red) to the anterior and posterior poles, respectively, of the stage 10 oocyte.
