The fruit fly Drosophila simulans, a close relative of D. melanogaster, was described in 1919 by Alfred Sturtevant and has since been used for comparative studies, revealing answers in the areas of polymorphisms and phenotypic divergence. With the upsurge of comparative genomics studies, D. simulans remains a useful model for investigations More...
