Abstract: M71.00342 : Dose-rate effects in the radiation induced mutation of Drosophila*
In 1926, Herman Muller conducted the famous expetiments of the radiation-induced mutation in Drosphila, which shows a linear increase with the the total dose. Later, Purdom and McSheehy irradiated Drosophila with much lower dose rate to find out if there is a dose-rate dependence in the mutation frequency.(3) Here, we reexamine their date with WAM model and found that the data is reproduced well with our model. We will discuss the possible dose-rate dependence of the radiation-induced mutation frequency in Drosophila.
