are heredity using Drosophila [7] , the common fly. Sturtevant determined the relative positions of six genetic factors on a fly’s chromosome by creating a process called gene mapping. Sturtevant’s work on gene mapping inspired later mapping techniques in the and twenty-first centuries, techniques that helped scientists identify regions of the chromosome that when mutated cause organisms to develop abnormally and to create treatments to cure those kinds of disorders. the physical materials and… 

Mendelian Genetics and Linkage Maps

TLDR
Breeders can expect to find SNPs within or tightly linked to genes of economic importance for use in marker-assisted selection and recombination frequencies and mapping functions can be used to construct genetic linkage maps.

The "Genesis of the White-Eyed Mutant" in Drosophila melanogaster: A Reappraisal.

TLDR
Modern genetics began in 1910 with the discovery of the white-eyed mutant in Drosophila melanogaster by T. H. MORGAN and his demonstration of the correlation between the inheritance of this mutation and the transmission of the Xchromosome.

Plasmids: Histories of a Concept

TLDR
By the end of the 1960s, both the genetic and physical understanding of plasmids and cytoplasmic heredity had reached a level of detail to allow exploitation of these genetic elements as tools to manipulate and study cell genetics by various techniques of lateral gene transfer.

High-Resolution Sex-Specific Linkage Maps of the Mouse Reveal Polarized Distribution of Crossovers in Male Germline

TLDR
The results confirm the observation that map length is longer when measured through female meiosis than through male meiosis, but it is found that this difference is modified by genotype at loci on both the X chromosome and the autosomes, and identifies large regions of reduced crossover frequency that together encompass 5% of the genome.

Recombination Rates in Drosophila

TLDR
Drosophila has been crucial in the development of genetic mapping techniques, which have been extended to other organismal systems including humans, and has been instrumental in elucidating associations between local recombination rate and nucleotide diversity, divergence and codon bias.

Crossover interference: Just ZYP it

TLDR
This work generated CRISPR/ Cas9 lines deleting both ZYP1 copies in Arabidopsis and reported that the transverse filament is not required for crossover formation in this species, making a leap forward in understanding of this puzzling phenomenon.

Chromosome mapping of linkage data fromSaccharomyces by tetrad analysis

TLDR
In yeast tile diploid zygote is formed by the copulative fusion of two haploid cells of opposite mating-type, a and a, and tetrad analysis possesses certain obvious advantages over conventional Mendelian analysis in which only one of the four chromatids of each meiosis is collected.

Mapping and identification of essential gene functions on the X chromosome of Drosophila

TLDR
A large‐scale P element insertion screen for vital gene functions and a BAC tiling map for the X chromosome are presented.

How malleable is the eukaryotic genome? Extreme rate of chromosomal rearrangement in the genus Drosophila.

TLDR
Comparison with available rates of chromosomal evolution, taking into account genome size, indicates that the Drosophila genome shows the highest rate found so far in any eukaryote, and supports the notion that it is extraordinarily malleable and has a modular organization.

Unique invasions and resolutions: DNA repair proteins in meiotic recombination in Drosophila melanogaster

TLDR
This review discusses DNA repair proteins that function in meiotic recombination in Drosophila melanogaster and emphasizes the processes of strand invasion and Holliday junction resolution in order to shed light on the questions raised above.

ON COUPLING OF CERTAIN SEX-LINKED CHARACTERS IN DROSOPHILA

TLDR
In the F2 generation the factors for eye color and body color appear to be associated in the same combinations that were present in the grandparents, the interchanging taking place only once to nearly eighty cases where there is no interchanging.

THE CHROMOSOMES IN HEREDITY

TLDR
The present paper is devoted to a more detailed discussion of the theoretical aspects of the subject, the speculative character of which may be justified by the attempt to indicate certain lines of work calculated to test the validity of the conclusions drawn.

Chromosomes and Heredity

  • T. Morgan
  • Education
    The American Naturalist
  • 1910
TLDR
It will serve at least to show that in what I am about to say regarding heredity and the germu-cells I shall ignore entirely the possibility that characters first acquired by the body are transmitted to the germ.

The Application of the Conception of Pure Lines to Sex-Limited Inheritance and to Sexual Dimorphism

TLDR
The treatment of sex as a Mendelian character; the relation between sex and the inheritance of secondary sexual characters; and the bearing of the recently discovered cases of "sex-limited-inheritance" on the problem of the transmission of characters in general are to be considered.

THE ACCESSORY CHROMOSOME—SEX DETERMINANT?

TLDR
The peculiar chromatic element discussed under this name in several recent papers is one that gives promise of throwing considerable light upon the nature of the chromosomes, and the study of the accessory chromosome is devoted, largely to the Orthoptera.

The method of inheritance of two sex-limited characters in the same animal

TLDR
At the last meeting of the society I reported the occurrence of a white-eyed mutant in a pedigree culture of the fly Drosophila ampelophila, which has shown itself to be sex limited in its inheritance.
