About this book

Molecular genetics uses Drosophila as a model organism for research purposes. Drosophila: A Toolbox for the Study of Neurodegenerative Disease gives an overview of the ways in which Drosophila are used for research, including some of the experiments and findings, and common models of diseases, especially neurodegenerative ones, that affect humans that have been based heavily on Drosophila research.
