A T-maze for identifying mutants that are unable to orient and travel toward light. Wild-type ies display positive phototaxis, and all accumulate on the illuminated end of the T-maze. Phototaxis-defective mutants go to either the light or the dark end of the T-maze with equal probability. ting the ies into a T-maze in which one arm of the maze is illuminated and the other is in the dark (Figure 16-7). MESSAGE Genetic selections resolve the mutant and wild-type states by killing or inhibiting the wild types, allowing the easy recovery of a large number of mutants. 44200_16p521-544 3/17/04 9:11 AM Page 526...
