  • B chromosomes, despite their common occurrence throughout the animal and plant kingdoms, have not been investigated extensively at the molecular level. While the majority of B chromosomes occurring in animals have been described as heterochromatic, only a few researchers have examined the DNA of these chromosomes beyond this gross cytological level. This is the case in the largest of the gliding marsupial possums, the greater glider, Petauroides volans. To examine the molecular composition and… CONTINUE READING
