For many years, scientists thought of recombination as a useful tool for constructing chromosome maps. Indeed, until DNA sequencing became widely available in the 1980s and 1990s, all chromosome maps were constructed using recombination frequencies; the more closely two genes are located on a chromosome, the less frequently they recombine.
Users are thus encouraged to share and post data that will help define the positions of these junctions on integrated chromosome maps. ([double dagger]) Homozygous for open-bud mutant conditioned by a double recessive gene with one gene in each genome.
The book is beautifully laid out, with a series of color plates that help describe phenotype switch variants and chromosome maps.
