The genomic organisation and diversity of the Ty1-copia group retrotransposons has been investigated in several crop plants and their relatives from both dicotyledonous and monocotyledonous families, including potato ( Solanum tuberosum), faba beans ( Vicia faba), Vicia melanops, Vicia sativa, barley ( Hordeum vulgare), rye ( Secale cereale), and onion ( Allium cepa). Extreme heterogeneity in the sequence of the Ty1-copia retrotransposons from all these plants was revealed following sequence… CONTINUE READING
