Constructing deletions with defined endpoints in Drosophila.


Chromosomes bearing small deletions are valuable tools in Drosophila genetics. We have investigated a method for efficiently constructing precise chromosomal deficiencies. Two P transposable elements were positioned within a progenitor strain at the sites of the desired deletion endpoints. Deletions spanning the two transposons were recovered at high… (More)
