Lauren Diepenbrock, Ph.D., shows off the dissecting scissors used to decapitate adult spotted-wing drosophila flies (Drosophila suzukii) prior to DNA testing for gut contents. The flies’ heads contain enzymes that chop up DNA, inhibiting DNA extraction. (Photo credit: Laura Kraft, Lauren Diepenbrock, Ph.D.)
