Among the large variety of possible model organisms to be used for our deeper understanding of different sciences such as neurobiology or genetics, the D. melanogaster serves as one of the most efficient models for scientists to use towards the research of a number of diseases and conditions. Aside from the quick generation time and its use for the past several decades by other famous scientists, the D. melanogaster organism contains only four chromosomes in its genome making it quite easy to locate genes. The genes of the fly and the genes of a human are both closely related to where the sequences of certain genes in humans can be matched with the same genes found in flies. Physically the fly is a small organism and can survive for months
