Big Biology Day 2019 - activitiesMembers of the Department took part in the Big Biology Day at Hills Road Sixth Form on 05 October 2019.

Attendees got to play an interactive game to show what a large number of biologists do daily, identify common Drosophila melanogaster phenotypes. They also played a game where they identified different species of fruit flies that are worked on in the department. We also had a demonstration of a fruit fly larvae actively defending itself against parasitoid infection under a mounted microscope and explained  the parasitoid life cycle in relation to the Drosophila melanogaster life cycle
