A high resolution plant mutagen monitoring system


, : A high resolution plant mutagen monitoring system. Genetics 91(4, II): s108

A system for monitoring environmental mutagens based on the waxy (glx) locus of barley is proposed. Forward and reverse mutations as well as intragenic recombination frequencies between mutants can be measured on a per million pollen grain basis using an iodine stain. Mutagens of known function are currently being used to induce mutations at the waxy locus.
