Drosophila melanogaster is a powerful model to study infections thanks to the power of its genetics and knowledge on its biology accumulated for over a century. While the systemic humoral immune response against invading microbes has been intensively studied in the past two decades, the study of intestinal infections is more recent. Here, we present the methods that are currently in use to probe various aspects of the host-pathogen interactions between Drosophila and ingested microbes, with an emphasis on the study of the midgut epithelium, which constitutes the major interface between the organism and the microbe-rich ingested food.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 31 August 2014.
All research outputs
of 4,198,162 outputs
Outputs from Methods in molecular biology
of 2,867 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 109,481 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Methods in molecular biology
of 45 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,198,162 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 43rd percentile – i.e., 43% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,867 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.5. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 67% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 109,481 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 45th percentile – i.e., 45% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 45 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 53% of its contemporaries.
