Crossing scheme for the generation of paternal half sib sisters using 'clone generator' (CG) females. CG-females carry a compound × chromosome [C(1)DX, y, f], a Y chromosome, and are homozygous for a translocation of chromosomes 2 and 3 [T(2;3) rdg C st in ri pPbw]. The translocated chromosomes are represented as a solid black bar because offspring are viable only if both chromosomes are inherited. The compound X ensures that during hemiclone capture and amplification, males receive their wild-type X chromosome from their father, and the absence of recombination in males ensures there is no mixing of wild-type and CG autosomes.
