A size-fractionated TaqI genomic library of seashore paspalum (Paspalum vaginatum Swartz) was screened for the presence of (GA) n and (CA) n simple sequence repeats (SSRs). A total of 54 clones with a positive signal were detected among 13,000 clones screened. Forty-seven clones having repeats of n[Symbol: see text] 3 were identified, of which 85% were(More)
Simple sequence repeats (SSRs), or microsatellites, are a new class of PCR-based DNA markers for genetic mapping. The objectives of the present study were to develop SSR markers for barley and to integrate them into an existing barley linkage map. DNA sequences containing SSRs were isolated from a barley genomic library and from public databases. It is(More)
Elymus tschimganicus and E. glaucissimus are hexaploids (2n = 6x = 42) that inhabit stony slopes and swales in the middle and upper mountain belts of Central Asia. Chromosome pairing at metaphase I in E. tschimganicus and E. glaucissimus was typical of other Elymus hexaploids, averaging 20.94 and 20.98 bivalents per cell, respectively. Meiotic pairing of(More)
Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers were used to assess genetic relationships and variation among ecotypes of the turfgrass seashore paspalum (Paspalum vaginatum Swartz). Vegetative tissues or seeds of 46 seashore paspalum ecotypes were obtained from various locations in the United States, Argentina, and South Africa. Leaf DNA extracts were(More)
To elucidate the genome constitutions of the tetraploid (2n = 4x = 28) species Elytrigia caespitosa, Lophopyrum nodosum, and Pseudoroegneria geniculata ssp. scythica and the hexaploid (2n = 6x = 42) Thinopyrum intermedium, meiotic pairing was studied in these species as well as 10 hybrids. Karyotype analysis with aceto-orcein stained root-tip cells was(More)
The objective of this study is to elucidate genome constitutions of Thinopyrum curvifolium (Lange) D.R. Dewey, T. scirpeum (K. Presl) D.R. Dewey, T. distichum (Thunb.) A. Löve, and T. junceum (L.) A. Löve. Hybrids of T. sartorii (Boiss. &Heidr.) A. Löve with T. scirpeum and T. junceum, as well as the hybrid between T. curvifolium and Pseudoroegneria(More)
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L., 2n = 6x = 42, AABBDD) florets were emasculated and pollinated using two apomictic wheatgrass [Elymus rectisetus (Nees in Lehm.) A. Love & Connor, 2n = 6x = 42, SSYYWW] accessions, one of which produces 2n pollen. A 2n = 42 (BII) hybrid and four 2n = 63 (B III) hybrids were obtained. The spike morphology of the B II hybrid was(More)
