Fruit flies are one of the keys for biologists to unlock the secrets behind human genetics, as well as understanding disease, behavior, neuroscience and more. For more than 100 years, scientists have used Drosophila as a model organism to learn about genes, disease, behavior, neuroscience, and more. But in the course of their work, there is a great deal of tedious, manual labor required to classify and sort each fly by physical characteristics such as sex and eye color. FlySorter LLC provides
