Chromosome 4 from Drosophila melanogaster has several unusual features that distinguish it from the other chromosomes. These include a diffuse appearance in salivary gland polytene chromosomes, an absence of recombination, and the variegated expression of P-element transgenes. As part of a larger project to understand these properties, we are assembling a(More)
A genetic approach was taken to identify new transposable element Tc1-dependent polymorphisms on the left end of linkage group III in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. The cloning of the genomic DNA surrounding the Tc1 allowed the selection of overlapping clones (from the collection being used to assemble the physical map of the C. elegans genome). A(More)
We have developed a new procedure that relies on an array of cross-hybridization tests to order a set of random clones into a contig. The method, called cross-screening, uses each clone as a target and its end sequences as probes, in a matrix of reciprocal cross-hybridization tests performed on a single blot. The relationships among the clones are(More)
The polarisation of ciliary bundles on the macula of the saccule in the European bass (Dicentrarchus labrax L) has been studied using a scanning electron microscope (SEM). These data show that D. labrax possesses ciliary bundles arranged in four dichotomous quadrants with a standard orientation, comparable to hearing generalists from the order Perciformes.(More)
Experiments were conducted to measure optical backscatter and beam transmission of suspensions of 180, 150 and 90 μm sand, and 40 μm clay, in a recirculation tank designed to house an optical backscatterance sensor (O.B.S.) and a beam transmissometer. Particle size was determined using gravimetric techniques and Coulter counter. By contriving known sediment(More)
