To exploit the polymorphism of repeat numbers in short tandem repeat (STR) sequences (microsatellites) as molecular markers, STRs must be isolated and PCR primers must be developed in flanking sequences. In species with large genomes such as Allium cepa L. (onion and shallot), an efficient selection procedure for genomic fragments containing STRs is a(More)
DNA damage recognition subunits such as DDB2 and XPC protect the human skin from ultraviolet (UV) light-induced genome instability and cancer, as demonstrated by the devastating inherited syndrome xeroderma pigmentosum. Here we show that the beneficial DNA repair response triggered by these two genome caretakers critically depends on a dynamic(More)
