Using Drosophila muscle development as a model system makes possible the identification of genetic pathways, temporal regulation of development, mechanisms of cellular development, and physiological impacts in a single system. Here we describe the basic techniques for the evaluation of the cellular development of muscle in Drosophila in both embryos and in larvae. These techniques are discussed within the context of how the LINC complex contributes to muscle development.
