Genetic analysis of fickle locomotor behaviour inDrosophila melanogaster

Genetic analysis was performed to identify chromosomal regions carrying genes affecting the “fickle” behaviour observed during a study on locomotor activity inD. melanogaster (Costaet al. 1989). The experiments were carried out using a wild-type strain and 13 morphological markers on chromosomes X and 3. The results suggest the presence of some major genes… CONTINUE READING
