Rice and barley chromosomal samples were prepared both on a polyester membrane and on an ordinary glass slide and subjected to microdissection by an argon-ion laser. The intensity and the position of the laser beam were controlled by a microcomputer. The most suitable intensity to obtain chromosomal fragments was determined experimentally. As a result, specific regions of the centromere, satellite, short arm, or long arm, of the barley and rice chromosomes were dissected out from the… CONTINUE READING
