Caption: Fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) sitting on the edge of a cylindrical container. This could represent the use of fruit flies in scientific research. This fly 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.
