DNA in all living things, artwork Featured Fruit Fly Print

DNA in all living things, artwork

DNA in all living things. Conceptual artwork representing the universality of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and the genetic code in all living things. The strands of the DNA double helix make up a man's face. The helix contains yeast (a fungus, top), a flowering plant (upper right), a sheep (upper centre), a fruit fly (centre left), a pig (lower right) and a flatworm (bottom). Many of these organisms have been used in genetic research: sheep have been cloned, pigs have been genetically modified so that their organs can be transplanted into humans, fruit flies are used to study the effects of genes and yeasts have been used to produce human DNA for the Human Genome Project

Fruit fly sex comb, SEM Featured Fruit Fly Print

Fruit fly sex comb, SEM

Fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) sex comb, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). The sex comb is found only on the front legs of males and is one of the most rapidly evolving male-specific traits in Drosophila. They use them to grasp the females' abdomen and genitalia and to spread their wings prior to copulation. Fruit flies are widely used in genetic experiments, particularly in mutation experiments, because they reproduce rapidly and their genetic systems are well understood.

Chikungunya virus research Featured Fruit Fly Print

Chikungunya virus research

Chikungunya virus research. Researcher working with cells cultured from Drosophila sp. fruit flies that have been genetically engineered to produce proteins of the Chikungunya virus. The Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) is an insect-borne Alphavirus that is transmitted to humans by virus-carrying Aedes sp. mosquitoes. CHIKV infection causes an illness with symptoms similar to dengue fever, with an acute febrile phase of the illness lasting only two to five days, followed by a prolonged arthralgic disease that affects the joints of the extremities. The pain associated with CHIKV infection of the joints persists for weeks or months, or in some cases years. Photographed at the Pasteur Institute, Paris, France
