The effect of different concentrations of titanium, nicol and silicon nanoparticles on mutagenesis in D. melanogaster (Canton S and Ebony) was investigated. In the presence of nanoparticles in the nutrient medium, mutations were observed in Drosophila. Titanium nanoparticles have the greatest mutagenic effect compared to others.
