Neurospora is also known as the “Drosophila of the plant kingdom” as it is used as a Model Organism for studies in genetic analysis. ... Neurospora is actively used in genetic studies and molecular research around the World.Since it is used extensively in genetic studies just like Drosophila melanogaster. It is also known as the guinea pig of microbiology,and other reason is as we know drosophila is the smallest fly and this neurospora is one of the smallest fungus .that is why it is called by this name only.
