Cool Stuff in Wolfram Alpha

Wolfram Alpha is a great assistant to those of us suffering through tedious MATH 3B homework (so...many...integrals..), but there is a much larger wealth of knowledge and tools that are easily accessible. Some of the cooler things are locked behind Pro, like Wolfram Genomics Assistant, but a broad variety of information is available to an average user. 

Some examples:

Input Output
DNA Sequence Amino acid sequence, melting temperature, occurrence on human genome
Plant Name, image, natural occurrences (and if it occurs in your estimated location!!), distribution, detailed taxonomy
Species X, Species Y, Species Z Compares species, too much information to list
