      $Drosophila$, the Queen of Genetics, is one of the most suitable model systems for laboratory exercises to teach and learn not only genetics but also many concepts in biology.

    • Abstract


      Even today, $Drosophila$ remains as one of the potent eukary-otic systems to study different dimensions of inheritance. It provides a wide spectrum of genetic resource of mutants which are of immense help to look into the effects of different types of mutations as well the mechanisms underlying their mainte-nance. Experiments involving lethal mutations in $Drosophila$ have helped us to realize a few more genetic lessons, and the same is discussed in this communication.
