A Genetic Nomenclature for Parasitic Nematodes

David McK. Bird, Donald L. Riddle


A uniform system of genetic nomenclature for parasitic nematodes is presented. Conventions for naming strains, genes, alleles, and loci identified as DNA polymorphisms are established, and a standardized system for naming molecular clones is proposed. Key words: allele, DNA, DNA polymorphism, gene, genetic map, locus, molecular clone, nematode, nomenclature, RAPD, RFLP, strain, STS.
