Studies on Recombination in Higher Organisms
Random-strand and half-tetrad recombination studies of rosy and maroon-like mutants have permitted us to investigate linked exchange in higher organisms. These studies involve the systematic recovery and analysis of the products of exchange events restricted to exceedingly short genetic intervals. Our observations lead us to conclude that all recombination involves a nonreciprocal transfer of information in the immediate region of the exchange event. These studies have been reported in great detail, and they have been the subject of recent review (Chovnick et al., 1971; Finnerty, 1974).
