Here we present the first detailed characterization of Praomys tullbergi karyotype, enlightening several chromosome features such as constitutive heterochromatin, telomeric and LINE-1 sequences. The combination of these approaches provided some interesting insights about the genome organization of this African species, which is one of the tullbergi complex elements, a group of species belonging to Murinae (Rodentia, Muridae). Evolutionary considerations on Praomys chromosomes were also achieved… CONTINUE READING
