About Drosophila pseudoobscura

Drosophila pseudoobscura is a North American fruitfly that has been used extensively in genetic studies, particularly with respect to speciation. It was the second fruitfly to have its genome sequenced [1], and was one of 12 fruitfly genomes included in a large comparative study [2]. Ensembl Genomes imports data from FlyBase, who also have much more information about the biology of Drosophila pseudoobscura, and a phylogeny of the 12 sequenced fruitfly species.
