This article reviews the historical development of cytology and cytogenetics in Arabidopsis, and summarizes recent developments in molecular cytogenetics, with special emphasis on meiotic studies. Despite the small genome and small chromosomes of Arabidopsis, considerable progress has been made in developing appropriate cytogenetical techniques for chromosome analysis. Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) applied to extended meiotic pachytene chromosomes has resulted in a standardized… CONTINUE READING
