BACKGROUND AND AIMS The aim of this work was the identification and molecular characterization of novel sugar beet (Beta vulgaris) repetitive sequences to unravel the impact of repetitive DNA on size and evolution of Beta genomes via amplification and diversification. METHODS Genomic DNA and a pool of B. vulgaris repetitive sequences were separately used(More)
By comparative multicolor FISH, we have physically mapped small chromosome fragments in the sugar beet addition lines PRO1 and PAT2 and analyzed the distribution of repetitive DNA families in species of the section Procumbentes of the genus Beta. Six repetitive probes were applied, including genotype-specific probes-satellites pTS4.1, pTS5, and pRp34 and a(More)
