Drosophila is the scientist's favourite lab organism because it reproduces quickly and has straightforwartd chromosomes. It has long been the organism of choice in experiments in genetics and is also popular in developmental and behavioural studies. The second edition of this popular PracticalApproach book brings the methodology up to date, with contributions from the world's leading Drosophila researchers. It will be valuable to the novice and experienced worker alike.
