A genetic map of six chromosomes of rye, (all of the rye chromosomes except for 2R), was constructed using 77 RFLP and 12 RAPD markers. The map was developed using an F2 population of 54 plants from a cross between two inbred lines. A rye genomic library was constructed as a source of clones for RFLP mapping. Comparisons were made between the rye map and(More)
Satellite DNA specific to the oat C genome was sequenced and located on chromosomes of diploid, tetraploid, and hexaploid Avena ssp. using in situ hybridization. The sequence was present on all seven C genome chromosome pairs and hybridized to the entire length of each chromosome, with the exception of the terminal segments of some chromosome pairs. Three(More)
A family of dispersed repetitive sequences (Hch1) which is present in the genome of the wild barley Hordeum chilense was studied in detail. Hch1 sequences are found both as part of short tandem arrays and dispersed throughout the H. chilense chromosomes. Subcloning of sections of the sequence reveals that it is composed of unrelated classes of sequences(More)
Two molecular marker technologies, random amplified microsatellite polymorphism (RAMP) and simple sequence repeats (SSR), were used to determine genetic diversity of 27 accessions of the wild barley Hordeum vulgare ssp. spontaneum. 19 primer combinations were used to generate RAMP fragments and 16 SSR loci were analysed. A high level of polymorphism was(More)
Degenerate primers based on conserved regions of the nucleotide binding site (NBS) domain (encoded by the largest group of cloned plant disease resistance genes) were used to isolate a set of 15 resistance gene analogs (RGA) from the diploid species Avena strigosa Schreb. These were grouped into seven classes on the basis of 60% or greater nucleic acid(More)
 This study has analyzed the molecular basis and genetic behaviour of the polymorphism generated by the amplification of barley genomic DNA with primers complementary to microsatellites. Primers anchored at the 5′ end, used alone or in combination with arbitrary sequence primers, generated random amplified microsatellite polymorphisms (RAMPs). Unanchored(More)
In combination with oligonucleotides of arbitrary sequence, 5' anchored oligonucleotides based on simple sequence repeats were used in polymerase chain reaction amplifications to produce barley DNA fingerprints. The aim of this work was (i) to develop a simple nonradioactive experimental procedure to reveal polymorphism in regions containing SSRs, (ii) to(More)
Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) with multiple probes was used to analyze mitotic and meiotic chromosome spreads of Avena sativa cv ‘Sun II’ monosomic lines, and of A. byzantina cv ‘Kanota’ monosomic lines from spontaneous haploids. The probes used were A. strigosa pAs120a (a repetitive sequence abundant in A-genome chromatin), A. murphyi pAm1 (a(More)
The sequences of the chitinase gene (Chi-26) and the internal transcribed spacer of 18S - 5.8S - 26S rDNA (ITS1) were determined to analyze the phylogenetic relationships among species representing the four basic genomes of the genus Hordeum. Grouping analysis based on data for Chi-26 gene sequences placed Hordeum secalinum (H genome) near the Hordeum(More)
Fluorescent in situ (FISH) and Southern hybridization procedures were used to investigate the chromosomal distribution and genomic organization of the satellite DNA sequence As120a (specific to the A-genome chromosomes of hexaploid oats) in two tetraploid species, Avena barbata and Avena vaviloviana. These species have AB genomes. In situ hybridization of(More)
