The problem considered in this paper is that of testing, given observations on a sample of cells, the null hypothesis that the paternal and maternal chromosomes in a particular pair behave similarly (e.g. have the same DNA synthesis rate, or the same sensitivity to radiation). Two models are considered, one in which a particular stimulus can conceivably affect either chromosome of a pair, and one in which it can affect at most one (for example, a particular labelled molecule may be used in synthesis by either chromosome, but an ionizing particle on a path intersecting one chromosome will generally be incapable of hitting the other). Tests are suggested for both models.
