Genetics Terminology Question

  1. Dec 14, 2003 #1
    Sadly enough, I have never seen a delta symbol in front of a printed genotype. Does this mean anymore than the obvious (obvious being some given changed, unstated, to the genotype)?

    Delta should mean change.

    Capital Greek delta is used to designate a deletions of an entire single gene or a large portion of it and it prefix the gene name.
