Pre-germination genotypic screening using PCR amplification of half-seeds


A simple and rapid PCR-based method has been developed for determining the genotype of seeds before germination. Single half-seeds of rice (Oryza sativa L.) and wheat (Triticum aestivum L. em. Thell.) were preincubated, without grinding, in an aqueous extraction buffer. The resulting supernatants were then used in polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with… (More)
