We have used a set of overlapping cloned segments defining a 315 kb (X 10(3) base-pairs) region of Drosophila melanogaster chromosomal DNA to map the sequences associated with the polytene band-interbands (chromomeric units) and with the lethal complementation groups contained within this region. The molecular map positions of the 13 +/- 1 chromomeric units from the 87D5-6 to 87E5, 6 region of the third chromosome were determined by in situ hybridization of selected segments to the polytene… CONTINUE READING
