    Fruit fly ovary_2


    A fruit fly ovary, shown here, contains as many as 20 eggs. Fruit flies are not merely tiny insects that buzz around overripe fruit--they are a venerable scientific tool. Research on the flies has shed light on many aspects of human biology, including biological rhythms, learning, memory and neurodegenerative diseases. Another reason fruit flies are so useful in a lab (and so successful in fruit bowls) is that they reproduce rapidly. About three generations can be studied in a single month. Related to image 3607.

    Internal NoteFrom: Denise Montell [mailto:denise.montell@lifesci.ucsb.edu] Sent: Tuesday, March 25, 2014 3:41 PM To: Machalek, Alisa Zapp (NIH/NIGMS) [E] Subject: Re: permission to use fruit fly ovary images in NIGMS publications? Hi Alisa, I am happy that you like the images and I am happy to have them used and displayed as broadly as possible. I do think that science can be extremely beautiful. The blue one received an honorable mention in the Olympus Bioscapes competition. There is no copyright problem at all as I have retained the copyright when submitting them. I believe that Nikon selected one of them to hang in their headquarters but again I retain the copyright. So use them as much as you like. Please let me know what you end up using them for, just out of curiosity. All the best, Denise -------------------------------------------------------- Denise Montell Duggan Professor Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology University of California Santa Barbara, CA denise.montell@lifesci.ucsb.edu (805)893-3633 https://labs.mcdb.ucsb.edu/montell/denise/
