Satellite DNA, a class of repetitive sequences forming long arrays of tandemly repeated units, represents substantial portions of many plant genomes yet remains poorly characterized due to various methodological obstacles. Here we show that the genome of the field bean (Vicia faba, 2n = 12), a long-established model for cytogenetic studies in plants, contains a diverse set of satellite repeats, most of which remained concealed until their present investigation. Using next-generation sequencing… CONTINUE READING
