Ryan --

Unfortunately, not being in your class (and therefore not knowing what
your teacher has told you about geentics), it's impossible to say what is
"unusual" about those particular genes. The Drosophila Virtual Library


or FlyBase


might give you a line on it, though. Good luck. (And BTW, it's "Drosophila
melanogaster" -- don't let anybody ever try and tell you that details
aren't important.)
