[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The available methods to isolate specific amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers can be used only if markers
are detected by radioactive labeling, silver staining, or ethidium bromide staining; these methods are useless if modern and
automated genetic analyzers are used to detect AFLP markers by fluorescent labeling. We have developed a method that allows
for isolation and cloning of specific AFLP markers obtained with a laser-induced fluorescence capillary electrophoresis system.
This procedure has been tested on 5Arabidopsis thaliana polymorphic AFLP markers, and the nucleotide sequences obtained from these cloned markers were identified and located in
