Abstract

Localization of transferred genes in genetically modified plants.

Abstract

Information is presented on cytogenetic techniques used in the following studies: (1) plant chromosome analyses; (2) gene mapping on metaphase chromosomes by in situ hybridization; (3) chromosomal assignment of transferred genes, including localization of T-DNA in Agrobacterium-transformed cells and of a low-copy resistance gene in a transgenic plant; and (4) chromosome-mediated gene transfer: identification of alien chromosomes, notably in asymmetric somatic hybrids and hybrid cereals.
