"Quasi-linkage" refers to nonrandom assortment of genes located on different chromosomes. Although this phenomenon has been widely observed in many organisms since the early part of this century, it is barely known. Interest in it was recently rekindled by the report of an association between quasi-linkage and the expression of genes belonging to a group of cancer viruses whose genomes are integrated in mouse chromosomes. This prompted an examination of the question whether "sustained meiotic… CONTINUE READING
