Genome size and Giemsa C-banded karyotype of tetraploid Bromus ciliatus L.

  title={Genome size and Giemsa C-banded karyotype of tetraploid Bromus ciliatus L.},
  author={Metin Tuna and Kenneth P. Vogel and Kathiravetpillai Arumuganathan},
Tetraploid Bromus ciliatus L. is a North American bromegrass that has been placed in the Pnigma section of Bromus. The objective of this study was to characterize the genome of tetraploid B. ciliatus by cytogenetic methods and compare it to the genomes of other species included in the section Pnigma. All the plants of the accession (USDA PI 232214) selected for chromosome counting were tetraploids (2n = 28). The mean 2C nuclear DNA content for tetraploid B. ciliatus was 19.13± 0.07 pg as… CONTINUE READING
