The Bloomington Drosophila Stock Center has assembled a new Deficiency 
Kit.  It provides maximal genome coverage using the fewest molecularly 
defined chromosomal deficiencies.  The new Df Kit uses deficiencies with 
breakpoints mapped to the genome sequence while the breakpoints of most 
deficiencies in the old Kit had had been mapped only by polytene 
cytology.  The new Df Kit should make mapping mutations and screening 
for genetic modifiers much more straightforward.   For more information,
