Abstract

Lolium perenne/Festuca pratensis hybrids and their derivatives provide an ideal system for intergeneric introgression. The work described in this paper enables the elucidation of gene organization along Lolium/Festuca chromosomes; the determination of the relationship between gene distribution and recombination, allowing comparisons to be made between genome organization in a small genome species (i.e. rice) and large genome monocots (such as grass, wheat and others); the determination of the genetic control of key traits; and provides a resource for gene isolation via a chromosome landing strategy, i.e. introgression landing.
