Genetic Research Model

Walk into any genetics lab, and you’ll most likely be greeted by a stray fruit fly or two. It’s not because the lab is dirty and needs a deep cleaning, it’s because fruit flies or drosophila are one of the model organisms for genetic research. These fast-breeding flies share 75% of the genes that cause diseases in humans. And oh, it’s easier and safer to experiment on drosophila than people! So, if this little buzzy bug has changed your life, then we’ve got the perfect accessory for you - our drosophila necklace. Buy it for yourself or for a friend. It’s an excellent gift for geneticists, entomologists, biomedical scientists, and starry-eyed pre-med students.
