THE present paper has been prepared in response to numerous requests for a general account of the genetic and cytological peculiarities of Sciara which will bring together the results published in various journals and will bring the evidence up to date. Such an account is especially needed because of the fact that in endeavoring to interpret our findings in Sciara in accordance with principles applying commonly to other organisms some misinterpretations were presented in our early papers. These… 
An inducible change in state on the chromosomes of Sciara: Its effects on the genetic components of the X
TLDR
The comparative study supports the original suggestion that the patroclinous males arise from no-X eggs following 3∶1 disjunction during oogenesis and supports the basic question of whether the paternally-derived X can function properly when it is retained.
L Chromosome Behaviour and Chromosomal Imprinting in Sciara Coprophila
TLDR
How study of the L chromosome condensation cycle has provided insight into the site and timing of both the erasure of parental “imprints” and also the placement of a putative ”imprint” that might be carried by the sperm into the egg is discussed.
L-chromosome inheritance and the problem of chromosome “imprinting” in Sciara (Sciaridae, Diptera)
TLDR
The failure of the paternal L's to obey the rule of origin during spermatogenesis indicates that the supernumeraries in this genus are not subject to the reversible “imprinting” which the regular complement undergoes.
The nature of the influence of X-translocations on sex of progeny in Sciara coprophila
TLDR
The studies support the view that (1) the X′ influence on sex of progeny is one on sex chromosome elimination from the embryonic soma, and (2) sex of the individual fly is determined by the chromosome complement which remains in the soma after elimination.
The karyotype of Rana pipiens and investigation of its stability during embryonic differentiation
Abstract The Rana pipiens karyotype has been determined from embryonic cells in order to have a basis for detecting abnormal chromosomes in future studies and to investigate whether the karyotype
Chromosome behavior in spermatogenesis of Cecidomyiidae (Diptera)
SummaryThe first spermatocyte division has been investigated in Rhabdophaga batatasWalsh and Wachtliella persicariae L. It was shown that the course of this division cannot be described as mitosis,
Studies in Polytene Chromosomes of Sciarids
TLDR
This report represents an initial step in an effort to trace homologies between major DNA puffs in a number of Sciara species, so that studies on evolutionary aspects of DNA amplification at puffs may then become amenable to investigation.

Regulation of X-chromosome inactivation in mammals.
TLDR
For the marsupial system it is possible to envisage that the different past history of the chromosomes brought in by the sperm is somehow responsible for the observed inactivation, and one complexity has appeared in the still quite limited number of marsupials.
Investigations of the germ-plasm in relation to nuclear transplantation.
TLDR
The first clear demonstration of vertebrate primordial germ-cells appearing in a stage as early as the blastula was made in the European frog, Rana temporaria, found to be conspicuous because of a stainable cytoplasmic element, the germ-plasm.
