Induction of Visible Mutations in Mormoniella by Use of Low Frequency Ultrasonic Energy

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Low-frequency ultrasonic energy was utilized in an attempt to induce visible mutations in the parasitoid wasp Mormoniella vitripennis. This study demonstrates that low frequency ultrasound may be used as an effective mutagenic agent in this organism, and suggests that it may have applications to other genetic systems.
