Characterization of a family of tandemly repetitive DNA sequences from the fern sawfly, Strongylogaster osmundae (Hymenoptera: Tenthredinidae).


A family of repetitive DNA sequences in the genome of the sawfly, Strongylogaster osmundae (Hymenoptera: Tenthredinidae) was characterized. The family consists of a tandemly arranged array whose basic repeat unit is 1.0 kb. According to the compositions and arrangements of bases, the basic repeat unit can be divided into three distinct domains. Three… (More)
