The determination of genome size in male and female germ cells of Drosophila melanogaster by DNA-Feulgen cytophotometry.


The amounts of DNA in haploid and diploid cells of Drosophila melanogaster have been determined by DNA-Feulgen cytophotometry, using Xenopus laevis erythrocyte nuclei as a reference standard. The haploid male genome is estimated to be 0.18 pg DNA and the haploid female genome, 0.20 pg DNA.
