Chloroplast genome organisation in sugar beet and maize

The XhoI and SmaI restriction map of the chloroplast genome from the fertile cytoplasm of sugar beet has been constructed from overlapping cosmid clones. The genome was found to be typical of that of a dicotyledonous species, being 147.3 kb in size and having an inverted repeat.
