DIOPT-DIST updated for 'fuzzy' search

The "disease full text search" field at the DRSC's only tool DIOPT-DIST, which is useful for matching up fly (or other model system) genes to human genes associated with diseases or traits, is now more forgiving of misspellings. Trying different synonyms for a given disease is still a good idea. Another tip:  On the search results page, click the DIOPT score to get a protein alignment.
