Genetic Techniques - Crosses

If you would like to contribute to this page, please include as much of the following as possible:
  • Who first introduced (invented) this technique? (a bit of history about its discovery)
  • What is crossing? How does it work? (the mechanism: such as RNAi to block RNA translation)
  • Selfing (hermaphrodite self-fertilization) is one form of crossing
  • Why is it used (when to use it to produce what consequences? to study what?)
  • How is it done? (methodology)
  • How much time does it take?
  • Advantage or disadvantage to use such technique in research
  • An example to illustrate such technique (movies, images and any other resources to accompany the explanation)
