Genome 371 Spring, 2005 Braun/Pallanck Name: . Quiz 3 1. You have identified a novel behavioral mutant of Drosophila that bounces around in a jerky fashion following a gentle tap of the vial containing this mutant. You hypothesize that this mutant (which you name slamdance , given its phenotype) may represent a model of epilepsy and you proceed to carry out experiments to map the location of the slamdance gene. You cross a slamdance mutant male to a female stock that is homozygous for the wild type allele of the slamdance gene.
