Correlation of the genetic and physical maps has been exploited to clone the mig-10 III gene (see CSH '89 Abstracts and previous WBG's). Genetic mapping placed mig-10(ct41) between unc-86 and unc-116, corresponding to a relatively small interval of the physical map (see Figure). A set of 5 cosmids from this interval was chosen and used in co-transformation rescue experiments with an unc-36 41) strain. One cosmid, F10E9, was found to rescue mutant phenotypes, placing mig-10 on the physical map. Specifically, 4 of 9 transgenic lines exhibiting unc-36 rescue also displayed mig-10 rescue, and in two such lines mig-10 rescue was transmitted to subsequent generations. To localize mig-10 further, several cosmids that overlap F10E9 are being tested for rescue, as are lambda subclones of F10E9. [See Figure 1]
