David Stern and collaborators at Cornell have designed a kit for
rapid mapping of new mutants. The mutant is crossed to the
polymorphic strain S1 D2 and progeny are screened by PCR and
electrophoresis using a set of primers for markers distributed across
the 17 linkage groups.
Please see http://www.chlamy.org/kit.html for details about what the
kit contains, ordering instructions, a new composite map of the
linkage groups, and individual pdf files describing the molecular
markers in the kit.
