Abstract:

This chapter talks about the mapping data for and compares these data with genetic mapping data compiled for , , , , and . Considerable genetic mapping data have now been reported for several other . These data are presented, some in abbreviated form, in this chapter. In , the and genes are inverted in relation to , the is near and not near leu, argO and are inverted, and and are in the ribosomal protein region. The chapter contains a table providing details on genetic markers of .
