Microsatellites, tandem arrays of short (2-5 bp) nucleotide motifs, are present in high numbers in most eukaryotic genomes. We have characterized the physical distribution of microsatellites on chromosomes of sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.). Each microsatellite sequence shows a characteristic genomic distribution and motif-dependent dispersion, with(More)
A DNA sequence, TPE1, representing the internal domain of a Ty1-copia retroelement, was isolated from genomic DNA of Pinus elliottii Engelm. var. elliottii (slash pine). Genomic Southern analysis showed that this sequence, carrying partial reverse transcriptase and integrase gene sequences, is highly amplified within the genome of slash pine and part of a(More)
In higher eukaryotes, the DNA composition of centromeres displays a high degree of variation, even between chromosomes of a single species. However, the long-range organization of centromeric DNA apparently follows similar structural rules. In our study, a comparative analysis of the DNA at centromeric regions of Beta species, including cultivated and wild(More)
We have constructed a sugar beet bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) library of the chromosome mutant PRO1. This Beta vulgaris mutant carries a single chromosome fragment of 6-9 Mbp that is derived from the wild beet Beta procumbens and is transmitted efficiently in meiosis and mitosis. The library consists of 50,304 clones, with an average insert size of(More)
We present a novel graph embedding to speed-up distance-range and k-nearest neighbor queries on static and/or dynamic objects located on a (weighted) graph that is applicable also for very large networks. Our method extends an existing embedding called reference node embedding which can be used to compute accurate lower and upper bounding filters for the(More)
Repetitive DNA sequences have been isolated from a Sau3AI plasmid library of tetraploid Beta corolliflora (2n = 4x = 36), a wild relative of sugar beet (B. vulgaris). The library was screened by differential hybridization with genomic DNA of B. corolliflora and B. vulgaris. When used as probes for Southern hybridization of genomic DNA, six clones were(More)
A cloned repetitive sequence, pAvKB30, obtained from an Avena vaviloviana (AB genome) genomic library, along with two polymerase chain reaction products derived from the conserved region of the reverse transcriptase (RT) gene of retrotransposons, were characterized molecularly and cytologically. The cloned DNA fragment was a dispersed repeat present in all(More)
Satellite DNA from wild beet species was separated from restriction endonuclease digested genomic DNA by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Two nonhomologous HaeIII satellite DNA repeats were cloned from the wild beet Beta trigyna. The type I repeat is 140-149 bp long and AT rich, while the type II is 162 bp in size and GC rich. A third repetitive HaeIII(More)
Monomers of a major family of tandemly repeated DNA sequences of Antirrhinum majus have been cloned and characterized. The repeats are 163-167 bp long, contain on average 60% A+T residues, and are organized in head-to-tail orientation. According to site-specific methylation differences two subsets of repeating units can be distinguished. Fluorescent in situ(More)
In this paper, we present an original network graph embedding to speed-up distance-range and <i>k</i>-nearest neighbor queries in (weighted) graphs. Our approach implements the paradigm of filter-refinement query processing and can be used for proximity queries on both static as well as dynamic objects. In particular, we present how our embedding can be(More)
