News

Thousands of strains of drosophilia, or fruit fly, have been developed for research purposes at Cornell Research. These fruit flies are currently being used to investigate human diseases, and researcher Chun Han from Cornell's Molecular Biology and Genetics lab is developing a new research technique called gRNA-infused crossing over, or MAGIC, that will make this type of research easier for future experiments.
