The Raleigh natural population of Drosophila melanogaster was reanalyzed with special attention to possible dysgenic effects during the extraction of chromosomes. About 600 second chromosomes were extracted from the Raleigh natural population, half in the cytoplasm of wild-caught females (native genetic background) and half in the cytoplasm of the laboratory line, C160(In(2LR)SM1, Cy/In(2LR)bw(V1)) (foreign genetic background). We could not find significant differences between the two… CONTINUE READING
