Nullisomic, tetrasomic, nulli-tetrasomic, and ditelocentric series lines showed that high molecular weight glutenin are controlled by the loci on long arm of 1A, 1B, and 1D chromosomes near centrometer (recombination index = 9%) [2].
The present study was conducted to map Randomly Amplified Polymorphic DNA primers (RAPDs) on homoeologous group 1 chromosomes (especially chromosome 1B of common wheat) of wheat genotypes "Chinese Spring" (CS) (which is euploid in nature, having genomes AABBDD, 2n=6x=42) and Nullisomic Tetrasomic 1B-1A (NT 1B1A).
