Temperature-sensitive mutations in Habrobracon*

  • Roger H. Smith (a1)

Summary

Techniques for isolating and analysing temperature-sensitive mutations in Habrobracon serinopae are presented. The temperature-sensitive patterns and lethal phases are described for nine different mutant strains. Such mutants are well suited for the study of gene action during development.
