Magnified eye of a
Drosophila melanogaster
from the laboratory of Dr. Leslie B. Vosshall
.
A tiny fly with great scientific importance,
Drosophila melanogaster
plays a critical role in
the research of many Rockefeller laboratories.
Currently, the Vosshall lab is studying how
genetic variations affect the fly’s sense of
smell and influence its behavior. This research
has profound implications for a variety of
insect-borne diseases, including malaria and
yellow fever.
