G iENETIC LINKAGE AND CROSSING-OVER are two key biological phenomena because they are involved in the transmission and rearrangement of the hereditary material. Analysis of crossing-over events also provides geneticists with a way to construct linkage maps depicting both gene order and distance. Mertens (1972) suggested student linkage experiments based on the analysis of testcross data in Drosophila melanogaster, but higher plants could provide an alternative system to stimulate the interests… CONTINUE READING
