Challenge problem 1 rII mutants On Monday morning you discover a new rII mutant (large plaques on bacterial lawn) on a plate from the weekend. You decide to see if it is something new. a. Monday AM, set up a cross to determine if the mutant is in either of the hotspots in fig 9.25. What cross(es) are set up for this purpose? b. Monday afternoon, you decide the mutant is not in either hotspot. What data convince you of that? c. Monday afternoon you set up the first of sequential crosses to determine the location of the mutant. First up are the crosses to the red deletions in fig 9.23, with results determined Monday evening (+ = production of + + recombinant progeny) Red deletions 1272
