Comparisons with Caenorhabditis (∼100 Mb) and Drosophila (∼175 Mb) Using Flow Cytometry Show Genome Size in Arabidopsis to be ∼157 Mb and thus ∼25 % Larger than the Arabidopsis Genome Initiative
Recent genome sequencing papers have given genome sizes of 180 Mb for Drosophila melanogaster Iso-1 and 125 Mb for Arabidopsis thaliana Columbia. The former agrees with early cytochemical estimates,Expand

Evolution of genome size in Brassicaceae.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Brassicaceae, with nearly 340 genera and more than 3350 species, anchors the low range of angiosperm genome sizes. The relatively narrow range of DNA content (0.16 pg < 1C < 1.95Expand

Reference standards for determination of DNA content of plant nuclei.
Flow cytometry was used to compare 14 potential reference standards for plant DNA content determination. Both chicken and plant internal standards were used, as were propidium iodide (PI) andExpand

Genome evolution in the genus Sorghum (Poaceae).
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The roles of variation in DNA content in plant evolution and adaptation remain a major biological enigma. Chromosome number and 2C DNA content were determined for 21 of the 25Expand

COMPARISON OF PLANT DNA CONTENTS DETERMINED BY FEULGEN MICROSPECTROPHOTOMETRY AND LASER FLOW CYTOMETRY
(...) Nuclei stained with propidium iodide, isolated from chopped plant leaves, were passed through an Ortho Cytofluorograph with a Lexel model 95 argon laser (514 nm) and the fluorescence measured,Expand

Dispersed repetitive DNA has spread to new genomes since polyploid formation in cotton.
Polyploid formation has played a major role in the evolution of many plant and animal genomes; however, surprisingly little is known regarding the subsequent evolution of DNA sequences that becomeExpand

Omnivorous feeding behavior of the Antarctic krill Euphausia superba
Feeding experiments were conducted at Palmer Station from December 1985 to February 1986 to examine the potential role of copepod prey as an alternative food source for Euphausia superba. CopepodExpand

Sunflower (Helianthus annuus) Leaves Contain Compounds that Reduce Nuclear Propidium Iodide Fluorescence
Sunflower leaves have unidentified compounds that interfere with propidium iodide (PI) intercalation and/or fluorescence. Independently prepared pea leaf nuclei show greater PI fluorescence thanExpand

Chromosome Identification and Nomenclature of Sorghum bicolor
Linkage group identities and homologies were determined for metaphase chromosomes of Sorghum bicolor (2n = 20) by FISH of landed BACs. Relative lengths of chromosomes in FISH-karyotyped metaphaseExpand
