Genetic Mutations of Drosophila melanogaste (fruit fly)

This project was created for Sapling Learning company. The illustration was created to highlight potential genetric mutations of Drosophila melanogaste (common name: fruit fly). The first image depicts the normal (Wild Type) anterior head of the fruit fly above the mutated fruit fly, which exhibits Antennapedia. Anennapedia is the growth of legs in place of the normal antennae.
The next image shows a separate genetic mutation of the fruit fly, ectopic eyes. Here we see the normal (Wild Type) anatomy of the fruit fly, followed by the mutated fruit fly with abnormal growth of eyes on the legs.
