A fly’s eye view of one hundred years of genetics. Over the past century the common fruit fly has been used to unlock the secrets of life – 60% of our genes are the same as the fly’s. In the lab we meet gay, drunk and violent flies as well as mutants high on crack cocaine in experiments that may help us find a cure for cancer.
