    mcFISH reveals chromosomal composition of micronuclei in Brachypodium

    Brachypodium distachyon (Poaceae) is now a widely accepted model grass. Its favourable cytogenetic features and advanced molecular infrastructure make it also a useful model system in mutagenesis studies. Kus et al. use fluorescent in situ hybridisation with repetitive DNA sequences and Bacterial Artificial Chromosome (BAC)-based chromosome-specific probes (mcFISH) to qualitatively and quantitatively analyse the composition […] More
