  • Model organisms such as the yeast, worm, and fruit fly have been stalwart allies of biologists for decades. But now that we know so much about the cell and molecular mechanisms of these organisms, is it time to retire them to the lab9s dusty top shelf? Not likely, say Fields and Johnston in their Perspective. The authors argue that model organisms will remain in the research spotlight for many years to com
