Work with Tarja Niemelä and colleagues has shown the location of the fertility restoration gene Rfk in Brassicaceae: the chromosomes on the left show strong sites at the end of an unstable chromosome from radish (red) introgressed into a turnip rape (Brassica rapa) line, where the homologous sites show weak hybridization (green) at the ends of the chromosomes.

See original paper in Chromosome Research http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s10577-012-9280-5 or the free author-preprint http://www.le.ac.uk/biology/phh4/openpubs/BrassicaRfkTarja_Authorpreprint.pdf .

Happy to say Celine Tomaszewski and colleagues paper on mapping in a segregating population of ryegrass is now accepted - preprint is at -

Celine's PhD exam is this week, so good to have the paper now! The paper shows very nicely how to locate and exploit genes controlling complex and important traits like rust resistance (that part by Stephen Byrne). #bs1003

Hello Molecular Cytogeneticists! Here is the www.molcyt.com www.molecularcytogenetics.com Google+ site. Hoping to post lots of material from our lab and more broadly about in situ hybridization, genome organization, repetitive DNA evolution ...
