Dynamics and evolution of multigene ribosomal RNA loci in Triticeae
Ribosomal RNA gene loci (rDNA) have been among extensively studied components of eukaryotic genomes. They were shown to be associated with nucleolus, the largest functional domain of the nucleus and the site of ribosomal biogenesis. Despite the biological importance, detailed information on molecular organization of rDNA regions is missing, especially in plants. This is mainly due to structure of rDNA loci, which are organized as long arrays of . . .
