A new study in fruit flies offers a broad view of the potent and sometimes devastating molecular events that occur throughout the body as a result of methamphetamine exposure.

The study, described in the journal PLoS ONE, tracks changes in the expression of genes and proteins in fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) exposed to meth.

((forgive me for straying from traditional micro, but who can resist posting an article about fruit flies on meth??  this is dedicated to all the biology undergrads out there who have spent countless hours on this damned creature, Drosophila melanogaster.  ..besides, it kind of counts as micro right?  you have to use a microscope to properly see them XD))
