The importance of mapping the chromosomes of the mouse is stressed, and the need for specially designed stocks for routine linkage testing is pointed out.
The theory of planning linkage tests is outlined, and the new concept of ‘swept radius’ is introduced. This makes it possible (
The composition of five specially designed linkage testing stocks is described. By the use of these stocks a gene can be tested against a little over half of the total genetic map, at the cost of raising about 500 test progeny, which is a considerable improvement over what is at present possible.
An outline is given in Appendix I of the procedure to be adopted for the use of the stocks.

This paper is a review of all published data on the supposed independence of the more important marker genes in the house mouse, using modern statistical methods to combine data from different sources. New data have been added whenever they happened to be available and the published data were lacking or inadequate.
About three-quarters of the necessary tests of the mutual independence of the known linkage groups (except IV) have been made. The least well-tested genes in the groups are
The evidence suggests that linkage groups, I, II and XI may not be independent, and further investigation is needed.
We are indebted to Miss Rita Phillips and Mrs Susan Sobey for assistance with some of the classification of mice and abstraction of data in Table 3; to Miss Mary Lyon and Mr G. A. Clayton for new data on
