This is most likely because they reproduce and regenerate quickly and they are easy and relatively cheap to handle. In our experiment, we observed flies (F2) with unknown phenotypes that we had to discover. After discovering the phenotypes that we were looking for, we tried to figure out the parents (F2), which was the purpose of the experiment.
