Fruit flies (Drosophila) offer you a wealth of hands-on options for teaching genetics. Students can easily study the sex-linked, recessive, and dominant mutations. Drosophila yields many flies from just 1 vial of media.

Chromosome 1 mutants (sex-linked), such as this Bar, are easy-to-score strains that are excellent for beginning genetics. These are also recommended for investigating sex-linked inheritance.

Each culture vial contains approximately 25–30 adult flies capable of producing over 50 offspring (1–2 per adult) over a span of 2 weeks, given proper care and environmental conditions.
