This annual meeting brings together basic research scientists, who study genetic models in Drosophila melanogaster, the common fruit fly, whose hereditary traits Thomas Hunt Morgan first studied nearly a century ago. Research in Drosophila continues to push the boundaries of our knowledge of genetics and biology, including human biology.

Representatives of the media are cordially invited to attend the scientific presentations. If you are interested in attending, please contact: Phyllis Edelman,, 301-634-7302 to register.


Plenary Sessions: Plenary Sessions will cover the breadth of contemporary research being conducted in Drosophila from population genetics, neurobiology to chromosome biology. For more information on the meeting, see the website at
