Molecular Cytogenetics in Onion Breeding.
The rapid progress in sequencing technologies and ‘big data’ analysis has opened boundless prospects for study of genome evolution and organization. However, we still have limited number of techniques allowing making a bridge between linear DNA sequence and genome structure. Molecular cytogenetics provides a toolbox of methods for DNA sequence visualization on nucleus or chromosomes bridging the gap between In Silico genome research and In Vivo genome organization. Molecular cytogenetic provides useful information for fundamental study of plant chromosome evolution and has practical application in breeding of new varieties.Author(s): Ludmila Khrustaleva*1, 2, Natalia Kudryavtseva1,2, Majd Mardini1, Aleksey Ermolaev1, Sergey Odintsov1, Mais Nzeha1, Ilya Kirov1,2
