Drosophila melanogaster is a fly, distributed world wide with the exception of extremes of altitude or latitude. Its claim to fame is that, for the last 100 years or so, it has been a favourite organism for biological research, initially in the field of genetics, but latter for the investigation of fundamental problems in biology from the fields of ecology to neurobiology. Systematically, D. melanogaster belongs to the large family of Drosophilae (with over 4,000 known species), a family of acalyptrate flies. By and large members of this family are specialized to feed, as larvae, on rotting vegetable matter that is undergoing fermentation due to yeast or bacterial contamination. It is these microorganisms that constitute the food of larval Drosophila. In the laboratory, however, D. melanogaster is grown on a flour-based medium gelled with agar and seeded with baker's yeast.
OMICS Group International is an amalgamation of Open Access publications and worldwide international scientific conferences and events. Established in the year 2007 with the sole aim of making the information on Sciences and technology ‘Open Access’, OMICS Group publishes 400 online open access journals in all aspects of Science, Engineering, Management and Technology journals. OMICS Group has been instrumental in taking the knowledge on Science & technology to the doorsteps of ordinary men and women. Research Scholars, Students, Libraries, Educational Institutions, Research centres and the industry are main stakeholders that benefitted greatly from this knowledge dissemination. OMICS Group also organizes 300 International scientific conferences annually across the globe, where knowledge transfer takes place through debates, round table discussions, poster presentations, workshops, symposia and exhibitions. Drosophila melanogaster has been introduced to every continent of the world with one exception, Antarctica. On other continents its range is limited only by mountain ranges, deserts, and high lattitudes. (Demerec 1950) The natural range of D. melanogaster is throughout the Old World tropics. Humans have helped to spread Drosophila melanogaster to every other location which it inhabits. Drosophila melanogaster lives in a wide range of habitats. Native habitats include those in the tropical regions of the Old World, but the common fruit fly has been introduced to almost all temperate regions of the world. The only aspects that limit the habitats Drosopila melangaster can live in is temperature and availability of water. The scientific name Drosophila actually means "lover of dew", implying that this species requires moist environments.
