Caption: Fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) in a test tube. The fruit fly has become one of the most ubiquitous research subjects, and is central to many genetic studies and discoveries. Fruit flies are widely used in genetic experiments, particularly in mutation experiments, because they reproduce rapidly and their genetic systems are well understood.
