Current Opinion in Plant Biology. 5:118-121. Technical Abstract: A high resolution genetic, physical and cytological map of the sorghum genome is being assembled using Amplified Fragment Length polymorphic DNA marker technology, six dimensional pooling of BAC libraries, cDNA mapping technology, and cytogenetic analysis. Recent advances in sorghum comparative genomics and gene transfer technology are accelerating the discovery and utilization of valuable sorghum genes and alleles.
