FlyBase is an online bioinformatics database of the biology and genome of the model organism "Drosophila melanogaster" and related Drosophilid dipterans. The FlyBase project is carried out by a consortium of "Drosophila" researchers and computer scientists at Harvard University and Indiana University in the United States, and University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom.

FlyBase is one of the organizations contributing to the Generic Model Organism Database (GMOD).


FlyBase contains a complete rundown of current discoveries in the "Drosophila" genome. It also includes a searchable bibliography of research on "Drosophila" genetics in the last century. Information on current researchers, and a partial pedigree of relationships between current researchers, is searchable, based on registration of the participating scientist. [] The site also provides a large database of images illustrating the full genome, and several movies detailing embryogenesis. []
