Commack Student Researches Fruit Flies
Congratulations to Trinity Russell for her research of fruit flies! Her study was published in the Journal of Experimental Science in July!
Trinity and her high school science teacher, Richard Kurtz, studied whether fruit flies bred in a research laboratory are the same as fruit flies found everywhere on Long Island. There are several types of fruit flies. This study looked a the common fruit fly or Drosophila melanogaster.
