> Hi, members,
> I have a question on insect mutation. Have you seen an insect with more
> than six legs? I remember a case with antennopedia but what if they have
> two or three legs at the place where it supposed to have one leg. If it
> happens, does anyone know what kind of gene mutation may cause this kind of
> problem? Do you think there is a way of finding/confirming it by
> sequencing/studying its DNA?
