Abstract/Description:
Courtship is the series of behaviors that fly pairs engage in before potentially mating. These behaviors play a huge role in the mating success between fly pairs and certain variables such as the courtship index is used to measure this relationship. This study will analyze the unblinded results of distinct fly pairs from different strains , specifically the Canton S. and Dahomey strains, after being isolated to test their mating success. The statistical data of the fly pairs’ courting and mating behaviors, which has been output from the Jupyter Python program, will be analyzed. Furthermore, the supporting tables and graph will be used to distinguish between significant differences of the two strains, and the possible reasons for these differences will be further discussed in the final section.
