Abstract

Position-effect variegation in Drosophila--the mosaic expression of a gene placed adjacent to a junction between euchromatin and heterochromatin--remains an enigma. However, new insights are being gained from recent studies of genetic modifiers, new model systems, and variegating genes showing exceptional behavior.
