• Genes
  • Chromosome landing, together with the technology that has made it possible, is likely to become the main strategy by which map-based cloning is applied to isolate both major genes and genes underlying quantitative traits in plant species. (wikipedia.org)
  • mutation
  • The location of the P-element insertion responsible for the $vr22\sp{P3}$ mutation was localized in the walk, and cDNAs corresponding to two adjacent transcription units isolated. (rice.edu)
  • Suppressor mutations can be described as second mutations at a site on the chromosome distinct from the mutation under study, which suppress the phenotype of the original mutation. (wikipedia.org)
  • copy
  • During the normal production of sperm and egg cells, DNA strands occasionally break and rejoin in different places on the same chromosome or on the other copy of the same chromosome (i.e., the homologous chromosome). (lsu.edu)
