Univ Calif Publ Zool 58 : 1— Cherry appeared October in an experiment involving vermilion non sex linked inheritance in drosophila in Colorado and miniature wings. Considerable data in which lethal was not involved were also obtained in the course of these experiments and are included in the summary of the total data given in table Since eosin is an allelomorph of cherry, it should be expected to give with sable the same cross-over value as did cherry.
If the gens for the Mendelian characters are carried by the chromosomes we should expect to find demonstrated in Drosophila that there are as many groups of characters that are inherited together as there are pairs of chromosomes, provided the chromosomes retain their individuality.

Eosin-cherry compound was also made. Begun DJ, Whitley P In color the yellow sable is quite similar to yellow black, that is, a rich brown with a very dark brown trident pattern on the thorax. In other words, a given factor may become the partner of more than one other factor, although, in any one individual, no more than two factors stand in this relation.
The same three points were combined in a different way, namely, by mating forked non sex linked inheritance in drosophila in Colorado to bar fused males. Of course, superficial mutations are more likely to survive and hence to be seen; while if mutations took place in important organs some of them would be expected to affect injuriously parts essential to the life of the individual and in consequence such an individual perishes.
The factor for yellow body-color lies at one end of the known series of sex-linked gens.
The factor for yellow body-color lies at one end of the known series of sex-linked gens. Nature : 84— The data given in table 38 show that the percentage of crossing-over does not change as the flies get older. It should be noticed that there is no apparent relation between the sterility of these two types and the occurrence of the mutation in the Non sex linked inheritance in drosophila in Colorado chromosome, because other mutations in the X do not cause sterility, and there is sterility in other mutant types that are due to factors in other chromosomes.
The amount of each kind of cross-over appears at the bottom of the table. The bar F 1 daughters were back-crossed to vermilion fused males and produced the classes of offspring shown in table The cross-overs between forked and bar number only 5 in a total of 1,, which gives less than 0.
If red-eyed and white-eyed flies are put for several hours into alcohol, the yellowish body-color of the white-eyed flies is freely extracted, but not that of the red-eyed flies. It may be asked what will happen when two factors whose loci are more than 50 units apart in the same chromosome are used in the same experiment?
