CAPS Markers

CAPS markers (Cleaved Amplified Polymorphic Sequences) can be used to unambiguously map an Arabidopsis gene to one of the 10 Arabidopsis chromosome arms. For a detailed examination of the procedure see: Andrzej Konieczny and Frederick M. Ausubel, (1993) A procedure for mapping Arabidopsis mutations using co-dominant ecotype-specific PCR-based markers. The Plant Journal 4:(2), 403-410.

New CAPS markers continue to be developed by members of the Arabidopsis research community. Eliana Drenkard and Fred Ausubel have collected the current list of markers, and provided it in tabular form for each of the five chromosomes. If you have developed CAPS markers for an additional locus, please contact or visit the website.

The CAPS tables currently available are:

All the markers now have entries in AtDB's database from the Locus table. Microsoft Excel and text versions are also available.
