Would be very grateful if anyone who knows would tell me what the
average life span of Drosophila, or of the primary strain thereof,
is.  Another idle question: a figure bandied about is that the
genomes of humans and chimpanzees are 99% identical.  What would 
the comparable percentage be for humans and fruit flies, and how 
much is known of the latter's genome, in comparison to the former's ?

Regards,
Rohan.
