Drosophila melanogaster strain:y; cn bw sp (fruit fly)

The Drosophila melanogaster genome was assembled from a combination of whole genome shotgun (WGS) and clone-based sequence data, and is annotated by the FlyBase Consortium.

See Genome Information for Drosophila melanogaster

The D. melanogaster genome is approximately 180 Mb in size, 120 Mb of which is euchromatic, and was sequenced as an early test of the applicability of whole-genome shotgun (WGS) sequencing technology for large eukaryotic genomes. More...
