Scientists recreate in flies the mutations that let monarch butterflies eat toxic milkweed with impunity
This finding could tell researchers why behaviors that change with the internal energy state, such as food intake, learning and memory, and sleep change on high-nutrient diets
Using fruit flies, a Rockefeller team has gained key insight into how nature's attempts at innovation play out during the development of sperm
Recent research results may help curb pest populations by encouraging growers to limit access to certain non-fruit food sources during times when drosophila populations are low and berries are not in season
Scientists use fruit flies to find nine new genes associated with learning and memory, many of which are similar in people
After feeding fruit flies a high-sugar diet, the flies’ taste neurons triggered a molecular chain-reaction that hampered their ability to taste sweets
A study of fruit flies finds a direct link between illness and the need for more sleep
