A new method for determining the sequence of mutational sites is based on the linear dose-effect relation for x-ray induction of allelic recombination in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Mutations at two loci have been mapped by this method. The use of x-ray simplifies allelic mapping and greatly increases its sensitivity.
