Drosophila pseudoobscura pseudoobscura was the second of the Drosophila species to have its genome completely sequenced. It has been used extensively in genetic studies, particularly with respect to speciation, since the 1930s when naturalist and geneticist Theodosius Dobzhansky searching for a natural population of flies found it in the western part of North America, its natural habitat.

The Drosophila pseudoobscura pseudoobscura complete genome sequence was published in 2005. It contains about 160 Mb, of which 130 Mb are euchromatin, and approximately 16,000 protein-coding genes.
