 It seems that the 5' end of P's are lost more frequently...We see this 
alot in the lab...plus this is the shortest route of deletion into the w 
or rosy gene for eye color in the p-element and since we use w- or ry- 
screens to identify imperfect excisions this may be the consequence seen 
	Good luck,
