Construction of Papaya Male and Female BAC Libraries and Application in Physical Mapping of the Sex Chromosomes
Illustration of gap filling using the male and female BAC libraries. The estimated size of the HSY is 8-9 Mb and the size of the corresponding X region is approximately 5-6 Mb. One gap remains in both the HSY and corresponding X physical maps. BAC clones from the male and female BAC libraries were labeled starting with “M” or “F”, respectively. The insert size of each BAC is labeled below the bar representing the BAC.
