I know that my ninth grade biology class studied the mating habits of drosophilla using a computer program.  There was also discussion 
on studying live drosophilla in captivity to see that effect on mating and feeding.  However this fist called for a quite a bit of research to be 
done outside the class room on their mating and feeding behavior.  Specific alleles passed on to the offspring were very easily seen on the computer 
program because the flies were many times larger than original size.
