D. simulans is actually a very important organism in areas of the genetics research community (of which I am a part). Much of this information may belong elsewhere in more broadly focused review articles, but I added some since it deserves mention. This organism may be unassuming, but I think it merits a more developed article. --WillJeck 23:11, 9 October 2006 (UTC)
