Caption: Mutant fruit fly. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of the head of a mutant fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. This mutant has two small ectopic eyes in the place of antennae, seen here between the large red compound eyes. Ectopic eyes are perfectly formed eye facets. This mutation is produced by inducing the expression of a gene called "eyeless" during the early developmental stages of the fly. "Eyeless" is thought to play an important role during larval development. Drosophila melanogaster is widely used in genetic experiments because it is easily manipulated in the laboratory. Magnification: x70 at 6x6cm size.
