Fruit flies are a nuisance to most, but these little insects are the pride and joy of many biologists working in the laboratory. They were first used in genetics, where scientists came up with many colourful names for genes they identified (sonic hedgehog anyone?) Today, Drosophila are used in many biological fields, including development, ecology, evolution, and neurobiology. They can be kept in little vials in the laboratory where they feast on yeast. One of their greatest advantages that makes them wonderful genetic models is their short generation time of 11 days.

Orange coloured mug featuring an illustration of Drosophila melanogaster and some facts about it.
