Researchers de-extinct flies with ancient genes to study evolution.

Researchers in the field of evolutionary development have long sought to understand how genetic mutations millions of years ago changed embryonic development to yield the diverse animal forms seen today. However, identifying the important mutations is very difficult because they occurred in long-extinct animals, and have been mixed with scores of subsequent mutations.  Now, a study from researchers led by
