In the category of “know your enemy” comes word that researchers have sequenced the genome of a fly pest known as spotted-wing drosophila. The pest attacks crops such as cherries and berries, and spread into California five years ago. Scientists say knowing about the fly’s genetic makeup will help them learn more about its behavior, its preferred food and other characteristics. And that, they say, will lead to new ways to fight the pest.
