A few months ago I promised that I would publish some original research on this blog. I managed to churn out some background, but I still haven’t gotten around to presenting any results. Even though I wasn’t able to get my original research out, it doesn’t mean that no one is publishing research on Drosophila on blogs. MissPrism has performed a somewhat scientific study of condiment preference in Drosophilids. Her conclusion: they prefer vinegar to sweet things. I guess that’s why they call them vinegar flies.
