The majority of Tech Resources (aka PTR) staff members are fully dedicated to the FlyLight team project. Under the guidance of FlyLight process leads, research technicians Joanna Hausenfluck, Gina DePasquale, Allison Sowell, Scott Miller, Jacquelyn Price, Kari Close, and Zachary Dorman perform fly brain dissections, followed by immunohistochemistry, mounting and confocal imaging of the tissues. Similar services can be requested by Janelia laboratories. The Technical Resources Manager will schedule these "custom projects" according to the availability of staff with the required technical skills.
