Grapevine is the one of the most important fruit species in the world. Comparative genome sequencing of grape cultivars is very important for the interpretation of the grape genome and understanding its evolution. The genomes of four Georgian grape cultivars—Chkhaveri, Saperavi, Meskhetian green, and Rkatsiteli, belonging to different haplogroups, were(More)
Hexaploid wheat (Triticum aestivum L., genomes AABBDD) originated in South Caucasus by allopolyploidization of the cultivated Emmer wheat T. dicoccum (genomes AABB) with the Caucasian Ae. tauschii ssp strangulata (genomes DD). Genetic variation of Ae. tauschii is an important natural resource, that is why it is of particular importance to investigate how(More)
Two par regions were localized within the structure of a small colicinogenic plasmid ColA. One of them functions at the expense of plasmid multimere resolution. Analysis of the nucleotide sequence of the region revealed the existence of essential homology with the par locus of plasmid ColE1. As compared to E. coli C600, the function of multimere forms'(More)
Georgia plays an important role in wheat formation. In the past, the Zanduri population of Georgia was a set of diploid—Triticum monococcum var. hornemanii (2n = 14) (Gvatsa Zanduri), tetraploid Triticum timopheevii (2n = 28) (Chelta Zanduri) and hexaploid Triticum zhukovskyi Men. et Er. (2n = 42). It is a Zanduri puzzle that wild T. araraticum was not(More)
The DNA fragment identical to the right shoulder of the inverted repeat from the par-region of ColE1 plasmid has been synthesized chemically. It is shown to participate in the plasmid multimers resolution and to define the stable inheritance of the plasmid pKS1 containing the fragment in Escherichia coli C600 cells as well as in the multirecombinogenic(More)
