The fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) is a well-studied model organism providing a full set of sequenced genomic information. Genes correlated with major human diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's are known to be encoded in the Drosophila genome. Wolfram|Alpha provides information about structural and functional characteristics of genes as well as reference DNA sequences.
