Paper Abstract

A neutron facility suitable for radiobiological applications is described. The small chamber can house, either, solid targets or a gas target. Using this facility, absorbed doses ranging up to 7.2 Gy were delivered to Drosophila melanogaster larvae in order to study induced somatic mutation and mitiotic recombination. Some preliminary results concerning these effects, related to a mean neutron energy of 2.15 MeV provided by a d + Be source, are presented.
