Caption: Fruit fly. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster). One of its compound eyes (red) can be seen at right. Fruit flies are widely used in genetic experiments, particularly in mutation experiments, because they reproduce rapidly and their genetic systems are well understood. Magnification: x50 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
