Differences between the human genome and Drosophila fruit flies used in research
By: D. Vogt
The Drosophila fruit fly revolutionized the study of genetics early in the twentieth century when it allowed biologists to conduct multi-generation experiments into heredity and genetic change. At the same time, however, it is important to bear in mind not only the similarities between DNA...
