Polymorphism of insertion sites of Ty1-copia class retrotransposons and its use for linkage and diversity analysis in pea
Abstract A sample of 15 cultivars and 56 Pisum accessions from the JIC germplasm core collection has been studied using a modification of the SSAP (sequence-specific amplification polymorphisms)Expand

The large-scale genomic organization of repetitive DNA families at the telomeres of rye chromosomes.
Repetitive DNA sequences in the terminal heterochromatin of rye (Secale cereale) chromosomes have consequences for the structural and functional organization of chromosomes. The large-scale genomicExpand

The genetic diversity and evolution of field pea (Pisum) studied by high throughput retrotransposon based insertion polymorphism (RBIP) marker analysis
BackgroundThe genetic diversity of crop species is the result of natural selection on the wild progenitor and human intervention by ancient and modern farmers and breeders. The genomes of modernExpand

Transposable elements reveal the impact of introgression, rather than transposition, in Pisum diversity, evolution, and domestication.
The genetic structure and evolutionary history of the genus Pisum were studied exploiting our germplasm collection to compare the contribution of different mechanisms to the generation of diversity.Expand

Insertional Polymorphism and Antiquity of PDR1 Retrotransposon Insertions in Pisum Species
Sequences flanking 73 insertions of the retrotransposon PDR1 have been characterized, together with an additional 270 flanking regions from one side alone, from a diverse collection of Pisum germExpand

Molecular diversification of tandemly organized DNA sequences and heterochromatic chromosome regions in some triticeae species
The subtelomeric heterochromatin of rye (Secale cereale) chromosomes makes up 12–18% of the genome and consists largely of a small number of tandemly organized DNA sequence families. The genomicExpand

Phylogenetic analysis of the genus Hordeum using repetitive DNA sequences
A set of six cloned barley (Hordeum vulgare) repetitive DNA sequences was used for the analysis of phylogenetic relationships among 31 species (46 taxa) of the genus Hordeum, using molecularExpand

Characterization of a family of tandemly repeated DNA sequences in Triticeae
The recombinant plasmid dpTa1 has an insert of relic wheat DNA that represents a family of tandemly organized DNA sequences with a monomeric length of approximately 340 bp. This insert was used toExpand

Seasonality of Dinophysis spp. and Prorocentrum lima in Black Sea phytoplankton and associated shellfish toxicity
Plankton surveys, between 2001 and 2005 along the Russian Caucasian Black Sea Coast, revealed Dinophysis rotundata, D. caudata and Prorocentrum lima as the most ubiquitous of the knownExpand

Chromosome ends: different sequences may provide conserved functions
The structures of specific chromosome regions, centromeres and telomeres, present a number of puzzles. As functions performed by these regions are ubiquitous and essential, their DNA, proteins andExpand
