The availability of molecular marker systems and their applications in genome mapping have lead to direct comparisons of the relative order of homologous sequences along the chromosomes of closely and distantly related species and the development of the concept of genome synteny. Comparative genome mapping provides insights into genome evolution and genetic information among divergent species. Therefore the primary objective of this study was to use RFLP markers to compare the presence of the same putative disease resistance genes in the sorghum and rice. During this term of my project work, I have learnt ~nolecular marker techniques like isolation of high quality DNA, restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP), and other related techniques like handling clones, transformation by electroporation, and isolation of the enzyme Tuq DNA polyntrmse. In addition, various computer applications like MS-Office, information search through Itlternrt has also been undertaken during the course...
