Now's the time for Fly

Fly is the first international peer-reviewed journal to focus on Drosophila research. Having expanded the editorial board to include even more experts in the field of Drosophila from all over the world, Fly is quickly becoming the 'go to' journal for Drosophila research.

Charles Robin

Charlie is an Associate Professor at the University of Melbourne’s School of BioSciences, where he heads an evolutionary genetics lab which uses Drosophila melanogaster as its primary research organism.

Charlie is interested in the genetic basis of adaptation, population genetics and molecular evolution. He uses insecticide resistance as a model for adaptive change and has made extensive use of the Drosophila Genetics Reference Panel. He has an ongoing interest in the evolution of multigene families particularly those encoding detoxification enzymes. Currently he is exploring population genetics methods such as gene drives to control pest insects.

Recently, he realized that he should change his Zoom name from ‘Specifly frass’ after needing to explain to senior university staff that 'frass' was insect excrement. However, he is happy about ‘specifly’ as a unique website name that captures the desire to control insect pests without harming biodiversity.
