Model organizmanın seçilmesi

Often, model organisms are chosen on the basis that they are amenable to experimental manipulation. This usually will include characteristics such as short life-cycle, techniques for genetic manipulation (inbred strains, stem cell lines, and transfection systems) and non-specialist living requirements. Sometimes, the genome arrangement facilitates the sequencing of the model organism`s genome, for example, by being very compact or having a low proportion of junk DNA (e.g. yeast, ``Arabidopsis``, or pufferfish).

When researchers look for an organism to use in their studies, they look for several traits. Among these are size, generation time, accessibility, manipulation, genetics, conservation of mechanisms, and potential economic benefit. As comparative molecular biology has become more common, some researchers have sought model organisms from a wider assortment of lineages on the tree of life.

Model organizmaların kullanımı

There are many model organisms. One of the first model systems for molecular biology was the bacterium ``Escherichia coli``, a common constituent of the human digestive system. Several of the bacterial viruses (bacteriophage) that infect ``E. coli`` also have been very useful for the study of gene structure and gene regulation (e.g. phages Lambda and T4). However, bacteriophages are not organisms because they lack metabolism and depend on functions of the host cells for propagation.

In eukaryotes, several yeasts, particularly ``Saccharomyces cerevisiae`` ("baker`s" or "budding" yeast), have been widely used in genetics and cell biology, largely because they are quick and easy to grow. The cell cycle in a simple yeast is very similar to the cell cycle in humans and is regulated by homologous proteins. The fruit fly ``Drosophila melanogaster`` is studied, again, because it is easy to grow for an animal, has various visible congenital traits and has a polytene (giant) chromosome in its salivary glands that can be examined under a light microscope. The roundworm ``Caenorhabditis elegans`` is studied because it has very defined development patterns involving fixed numbers of cells, and it can be rapidly assayed for abnormalities.
