Drosophila Fruit Fly PendantRegular price €99.00
Your favorite geneticist will swoon over this detailed, accurate fruit fly pendant. Drosophila is a model organism with a short generation time that produces a lot of offspring...an ideal combination for genetic research. Although you might think that the fruit fly is very different from the human animal, in reality, 50% of fly proteins have a direct homolog in the human genome. Proof: we both like wine.
The fly is 2.4 cm (0.94 inches) in length.
The pendant is 3D printed in solid sterling silver, 14K gold plated brass, bronze or 14K solid gold and shipped with a sterling silver, gold-plated silver or rose gold-plated silver anchor chain to match.
