Hundreds of Drosophila cell lines have been established in the labs of many researchers over the last decades and have been important tools for research. Although these cells often deviate from normal cell physiology and genetic composition, such systems nonetheless are powerful models for biochemical, cell biological, and genetics studies that are experimentally difficult in vivo. While published descriptions of cell line generation are available in the literature, how to generate new Drosophila cell lines can be challenging for beginners. Here, we describe a detailed, simple protocol to establish new Drosophila cell lines.
