Caption: Fruit fly. Macrophotograph of a fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster). This insect is commonly used in genetic research. It breeds quickly and has a small number of chromosomes. Its chromosomes are large, making them easy to study and identify. It also mutates spontaneously, which allows study of how genetic changes affect the organism. Magnification: x13.5 at 6x9cm size.
