A yeast artificial chromosome (YAC) physical map of chromosome
2 of Arabidopsis thaliana has been constructed by hybridization of
69 DNA markers and 61 YAC end probes to gridded arrays of YAC
clones. Thirty-four YACs in four contigs define the chromosome.
Complete closure of the map was not attained because some regions
of the chromosome were repetitive or were not represented in the
YAC library. Based on the sizes of the YACs and their coverage of
the chromosome, the length of chromosome 2 is estimated to be at
least 18 Mb. These data provide the means for immediately
identifying the YACs containing a genetic locus mapped on
Arabidopsis chromosome 2.
