Abstract:

Most of the mapping in has been done by PBSl-mediated transduction. This method is sufficiently reliable for gene ordering in three-point crosses. However, several authors deduce gene order and distance from recombination values in two-point crosses. Interpretation of such results requires caution since there combination frequencies measured are known to vary from one PBS1 lysate to another and also with the age of the lysates. The genetic nomenclature in this map follows the general rules adopted by the . This chapter contains a table with information and references for the function controlled by each gene, the phenotype acquired by mutation, the product when known, and whether the gene has been cloned and sequenced.
