A large portion of the Drosophila melanogaster genome is contained within heterochromatic regions of chromosomes, predominantly at centromeres and telomeres. The remaining euchromatic portions of the genome have been extensively characterized with respect to gene organization, function and regulation. However, it has been difficult to derive similar data for sequences within centromeric (centric) heterochromatin because these regions have not been as amenable to analysis by standard genetic and… CONTINUE READING
