Non-mammalian model organisms in metabolic research

This growing web collection features research articles published in Nature Metabolism that make use of non-mammalian model organisms. With this collection we aim to highlight the usefulness of these models for unraveling new metabolic biology.

This image shows a collage of three non-mammalian model organisms that are used for metabolic research: The fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, the zebrafish Danio rerio and the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans.
