The somatic chromosomes of common wheat, Triticum aestivum L. (2n = 6x = 42), and those of two of its diploid progenitors and T. speltoides, have been individually identified by a Giemsa staining technique. In wheat, telocentric chromosomes were used to aid the recognition of individual chromosomes, and an ideogram has been constructed depicting the C-band positions. There is no similarity in the C-banding of chromosomes within a homoeologous group, with the possible exception of group 5… CONTINUE READING
