Analysis of gene expression during flowering in apomeiotic mutants of Medicago spp.: cloning of ESTs and candidate genes for 2n eggs

Abstract

Mutants showing features of apomixis have been documented in alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.), a natural outcrossing sexual species. A differential display of mRNAs that combines cDNA-AFLP markers and bulked segregant analysis was carried out with the aim of selecting expressed sequence tags (ESTs) and cloning candidate genes for apomeiosis in mutants of… (More)
