## What’s New In?

Most previous studies of sexual development have focused on the role of steroid hormones, particularly testosterone. Much less is known about the role of juvenile hormones (JHs), and their sex-specific derivatives, in sexual development in insects. The long-term goal of our research is to understand the developmental roles of JH and JH derivatives in reproductive processes in both sexes. This knowledge is essential if we are to develop strategies for the control of insect pests. The fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, is an ideal organism for these studies. While JH is known to play an essential role in the determination of sexual morphology in males, little is known about how JH functions in females. We propose to address this issue using female Drosophila in which we have modified the JH signaling pathway so that female sexual dimorphism is influenced by JH. In particular, we will determine whether the effects of JH are direct or indirect. We will perform large scale genetic and biochemical screening of RNAi and ectopic expression libraries to identify new genes involved in JH signaling, and perform detailed analysis of the phenotype of transgenic flies with appropriate constructs. We will also perform quantitative studies of the levels and pattern of gene expression in the signal transduction pathways. This research has the potential to provide important information about the roles of JH signaling in sexual development in females.Q:

How do I get private methods in a Perl module?

I would like to use a private method in my Perl module.
How do I get access to private method of my own class?

A:

You can’t. Just make them public.
You can pretend like they’re private for testing purposes, of course:
my $foo = ‘foo’; package My::Module; sub some_private_method { my$self = shift;
my $foo = shift; …do stuff$self->private_method_1($foo);$self->private_method_2($foo); } # pretend private sub private_method_1 { my$self = shift;
my \$foo = shift;

}

A:

There is no way to do so. But you can use a framework that allows to be implemented by such methods. For
