New Functionality

For the first time since 1997, the Electronic Scholarly Publishing Project has received a complete facelift. All of the old content and functionality have been preserved, now wrapped in a new look. New features and content have also been added.

Why a New Design

Hello —this is ESP-pop-cap formatted text. The parallel between the behavior of the chromosomes in reduction and that of Mendelian factors in segregation was first pointed out by Sutton (1902) though earlier in the same year Boveri (1902) had referred to a possible connection. In this paper and others Boveri brought forward considerable evidence from the field of experimental embryology indicating that the chromosomes play an important role in development and inheritance. The first attempt at connecting any given somatic character with a definite chromosome came with McClung's (1902) suggestion that the accessory chromosome is a sex-determiner. Stevens (1905) and Wilson (1905) verified this by showing that in numerous forms there is a sex chromosome, present in all the eggs and in the female-producing sperm, but absent, or represented by a smaller homologue, in the male-producing sperm. A further step was made when Morgan (1910) showed that the factor for color in the eyes of the fly Drosophila ampelophila follows the distribution of the sex chromosome already found in the same species by Stevens (1908). Later, on the appearance of a sex-linked wing mutation in Drosophila, Morgan (1910a, 1911) was able to make clear a new point. By crossing white-eyed, long-winged flies to those with red eyes and rudimentary wings (the new sex-linked character) he obtained, in F2, white-eyed, rudimentary-winged flies.

Accessing the Old Design

This paragraph is for testing superscripts and subscripts, as in F1 or F2 or F3 or x2. The parallel between the Σδ behavior of the chromosomes in F2 reduction and that of Mendelian factors in segregation was first pointed out by Sutton (1902) though earlier in the same year Boveri (1902) had referred to a possible connection.

Old Page Content

To assist users in relocating material they have used on the old site, we will (temporarily) provide access to a copy of the old site's equivalent page (below), running on a separate server.

This temporarily maintained old site will not be updated, so you should switch to the new design as soon as possible.
