The possibility of using inherited abnormalities in place of conventional experimental embryological methods has been explored by several workers in Drosophila , where there is a large range of lethal and female sterile genes readily available (reviewed Waddington, 1956). These genes are usually pleiotropic, i.e. with manifold effects, and tracing these diverse effects back as far as possible to a single primary defect gives information about the corresponding developmental mechanisms in the… Expand
