Genetic studies of higher organisms, including man, are based on the analysis of segregation and recombination events resulting from se>.."Ual reproduction. In 1962 Pontecorvo predicted, however, that cultured cells could also be employed for this purpose. He suggested that parase::\"Ual events, detected in certain fungi, might occur also in 11in vitro11 cultured cells. Now, ten years later, there are strong indications that this prediction will indeed come true.
