How do fruit flies process lipids?
As a young child, I used to wonder to myself whether the humble fruit fly had a liver.
Unfortunately nobody could answer my childish question.
That was until I met Keno, who embarked upon a mission to find out.
One PhD later, and Keno has published his finding in Nature! Congratulations Keno!
Now I know that the fruit fly does indeed have lipid processing cells. I thought as much!
