-like sequences were PCR amplified from sweetpotato [Ipomoea batatas (L.) Poir.] L87-95 genomic DNA samples by using Ty1-copia reverse transcriptase-specific primers. PCR fragments within the expected size range were isolated, cloned, and sequenced. Inferred amino acid sequences of two randomly selected cloned fragments were found to be highly homologous to… CONTINUE READING
