In the collection of A-A translocation stocks maintained at MGCSC is a series of waxy1-linked translocations that are used for mapping unplaced mutants.  Over the last decade, new wx1-linked translocations have been introduced into this series and are in a conversion program to convert each translocation to the inbred backgrounds M14 and W23.  These inbred conversions are then crossed together to produce vigorous F1's to fill seed requests.  Below is a summary of the linkage results for some of these stocks.  Additional translocation stocks will be tested as time allows. 

We report here the positive results of two-point linkage tests with f1 and P-ww for 6 of these new accessions: for f1-wx1 T1-9Õs (Tables 1& 2) and for P1-ww-wx1 T1-9Õs (Tables 3-6).  The linkage tests were set up as modified backcrosses as indicated.  These new wx1 marked translocations have been converted and F1Õs are now available for distribution.  A sixth translocation was found to show no linkage with its appropriate marker stock.
