Science is a constantly evolving and demanding field, requiring a variety of biological and molecular tools. One such tool is the model organism, an essential aspect of biological research that has defined our understanding of biological processes and developments. Model organisms often feature genetic, physiological, or developmental characteristics that make them ideal for studying in a laboratory environment. We’ve covered five model organisms in a previous blog post, but here are five more model organisms that have left a historical impact on the scientific community.
(And, check out this blog post to see even more genetic systems for emerging model organisms!)
