Rainbow Fruit Fly

This drosophila melanogaster, also known as the common fruit fly, is a common organism used by scientists in order to experiment and test their theories on. The fruit fly I have drawn has red and white sections in its eyes representing one of the experiment when they test their theories of x-linked recessive genes in order to determine whether a fly’s eyes would be red or white depending on its parent. The cross sections are colored differently representing how they manage to map out the genes of a fly and match them to other organisms.
