Abstract

To aid linkage analysis and mapping studies in , we have constructed several tester strains with easily scored mutations characterizing the six currently identified linkage groups. Use has been made of conditionally lethal mutants unable to grow upon , and the locus of the mutation involved () has been assigned to linkage group III. The mutation , which confers resistance to cobaltous chloride, has been assigned to a previously unidentified linkage group (VII). The temperature-sensitive growth mutation , previously reported to define linkage group V, has been reassigned to group III, leaving linkage group V presently unmarked. The further use of genetic tester strains is described.
