If you have a question about this talk, please contact Graham Edgecombe.

For the last talk of the term PhD student, Paola Cognigni, will be talking about the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster and why it has proved such a successful model organism in biology.

Scientists and non scientists alike should be able to enjoy this talk, and whatever your prior knowledge may be you’re bound to take something away: perhaps you’ll learn something interesting about the sex lives of flies, or perhaps you’ll just be overwhelmed by the sheer awesomeness of biology.

As with all out talks there will be an abundance of tea, coffee, wine, and nibbles. Entry is free for Stokes members and just £1 for non-members.

This talk is part of the Stokes Society, Pembroke College series.
