Breeding fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) for research. Flasks containing nutrient medium and fruit fly pupae. Fruit flies are used for genetics research projects because their entire life cycle only takes 10 days, they breed quickly and prolifically, they have only four pairs of chromosomes, and they have similar biochemical pathways to humans.
