Bateson and Epistasis

William Bateson first used the term 'epistasis' to describe distortions of Mendelian segregation ratios that were due to one gene masking the effects of another. This is discussed in his 1909 book on "Mendel's Principles of Heredity" which has now been reprinted by Cosimo Classics and is available through Amazon.com.
