Does anyone know of reliable tool, script, or db for batch querying gene descriptions for the fruit fly?

Yes I am using flybase. But unless I am blind (possible) I don't see any tools for getting the gene descriptions. Plenty of ID conversion tools, no descriptions.

The GTF file doesn't have descriptions in it unfortunately. I tried that at first too. No description tables in fruitfly.org either. Thanks anyway!

You may automate by downloading the result of flybase, since the format is http://flybase.org/reports/<fbgn>.html and then parse it with something like XSLT
