VIDEO DESCRIPTION:

Researchers from the University of Konstanz in Germany and the University La Sapienza in Italy have genetically modified fruit flies so that their antennae glow when they sense a cancerous cell. Using their hypersensitive sense of smell, the fruit flies are able to pick up on cancer cells that give off a different odor from healthy cells, as well as being able to differentiate between five kinds of breast cancer.
