Drosophila   Muliplies   Like flies

Drosophila Melanogster, commonly known as the fruit fly contributed greatly to what now know as the study of genetics. Their great reproductive capabilities allow for a large amount of research resulting in a large amount of data which is really useful. Since these flies reproduce very well drosophila are very disposable not saying that they would just get rid of flies constantly or just to be disposing of flies, but if a fly was killed during experimentation it was very easy to obtain another one. Their reproductive abilities also aided when determining how often a trait would show up.
