Abstract:Musca domestica L. (Diptera: Muscidae), better known as the common housefly, is increasingly considered to be a new, alternative protein source for animal nutrition. By transferring low‐value organic side streams into high‐value protein products, its commercial production contributes to a circular economy. Next to technical innovations for scaling‐up the production capacity, efficient egg production has been identified as one of the bottlenecks of housefly production systems. We investigated egg production in …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
