About this book

Model animals are much used in medical research to gain an understanding of a range of conditions. The most often used insect is the fruit fly; 75% of disease-causing genes have a functional homologue in the fruit fly. The ability of the honey bee to learn tasks and to communicate with nest mates means that it can be a useful animal model in such human conditions as depression and drug addiction. Nicola explains experiments which demonstrate the potential.
