A 315 kb walk in the genetically well characterized rosy region of the Drosophila chromosomes permits a molecular analysis of chromosome organization. Polytene chromosome bands in this region range from less than 7 kb to about 160 kb and the level of DNA replication is constant within bands and among bands and interbands. A good numerical and topographical correspondence is found between chromomeric units and genetic units.
