USGA Summary Points:This project increased the number of Cynodon gene sequences to about 20,000, more than doubling our knowledge of its genes and their functions. Identification of corresponding rice/sorghum genes will permit scientists to deduce the probable functions of many Cynodon genes and also reveal features that are present in the genomic DNA that surrounds Cynodon genes but are absent from the ESTs, such as the 'promoters' (on/off switches) that regulate their expression. Large numbers of 'conserved intron scanning primers,' (PCR-based markers) are ideal for many applications in Cynodon research and improvement. While a complete sequence of the Cynodon genome remains far in the future, our work will build the framework for efficient progress by linking this project, the most extensive Cynodon sequencing effort, to the first detailed Cynodon genetic map.
