Caption: Mutant fruit fly, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). The large compound eyes (red) are on either side of the head, with the mouthparts at the front of the head. Parts of the thorax and the two front legs are also seen. This is a Drosophila fruit fly. Fruit flies are widely used in genetic experiments, particularly in mutation experiments, because they reproduce rapidly and their genetic systems are well understood.
