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.

EST, Gene, and Protein Alignments

Drosophila pseudoobscura ESTs from dbEST were mapped onto the genome using Exonerate.

UniGene sequences were positioned on the genome using WU-BlastN with Genscan predictions. WU-BlastP was used to map UniProtKB proteins onto Genscan-predicted peptides.
