Wangler MF, Yamamoto S, Bellen HJ. Fruit Flies in Biomedical Research. Genetics. 2015 Jan 26. pii: genetics.114.171785. PMID: 25624315.
From the abstract: "... numerous very interesting biological processes and avenues remain to be investigated in Drosophila, and probing questions can be answered fast and efficiently in flies ... We would like to promote a better collaboration between Drosophila geneticists/biologists and human geneticists/bioinformaticians/clinicians, as it would benefit both fields and significantly impact the research on human diseases."
