|Abstract||We are pursuing a positional cloning strategy to isolate the fertility restoration gene Rfk1 from radish. Random polymorphic DNA-sequence-tagged site (RAPD-STS) markers tightly linked to the gene in radish were isolated, and a RAPD map surrounding the Rfk1 locus was constructed. We surveyed 948 F2 plants with adjacent RAPD-STS markers to isolate recombinants for bulk segregant analysis. This analysis was effective in isolating tightly linked amplification fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers surrounding the gene of interest. Ten tightly linked AFLP markers were obtained and used to construct a high-resolution map of the region. The closest AFLP-STS markers flanking Rfk1 were 0.1 cM and 0.2 cM away. Using the four adjacent AFLP markers, we screened λ and cosmid libraries. The λ and cosmid clones were aligned by examination of end sequences and restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) patterns for each clone, and by hybridization to the DNA isolated from recombinants. Finally, we constructed a 198-kb contig encompassing the Rfk1 gene and comprising 20 λ and two cosmid clones. By analysis of the breakpoints in recombinants with the rfk1/rfk1 or Rfk1/- genotype, the Rfk1 locus could be assigned to a 43-kb region comprising four λ clones and one cosmid clone. This pinpoint localization in the radish genome has made it possible for us to identify the gene by sequence analysis and genetic transformation of cytoplasmic male-sterile Brassica napus plants.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
