For 12 years, recombination rate was assessed in Drosophila melanogastermales exposed on a thermoelectric power station (TPS) of Moscow. In 1994, experiments were also carried out on another Moscow TPS for comparison. The recombination frequency in exposed males was two- or threefold higher than in the control sample. Recombination frequencies observed in… CONTINUE READING
