Does genome size in Dasypyrum villosum vary with fruit colour?

  title={Does genome size in Dasypyrum villosum vary with fruit colour?},
  author={Renate Obermayer and Johann Greilhuber},
Dasypyrum villosum (2n=14), a Mediterranean grass species of the Triticeae, exhibits intraindividual fruit colour polymorphism from pale yellow to almost black. Several studies have reported differences between the plants emerging from pale and dark fruits. They include histone content in root meristem nuclei, cell cycle duration, heterochromatin banding pattern, frequency of a tandemly repeated sequence, and nuclear genome size. In the present study, we examine whether the reports of genome… CONTINUE READING
