As starting points for the molecular cloning of lin-12 III and tra-1 III, we have identified several Tc1 polymorphisms linked to these genes. Genomic DNA was prepared from appropriate Bristol/Bergerac hybrid strains, cut with EcoRI, and probed with Tc1 (kindly provided by Scott Emmons). Our data are summarized in the maps below, which give the approximate map locations and EcoRI fragment sizes of the Bergerac-specific Tc1's. [See Figure 1]
