MutChromSeq is an approach for isolation of genes and DNA sequences controlling gene expression in plants with complex and polyploid genomes. It involves a lossless complexity reduction by flow cytometric chromosome sorting and shotgun sequencing DNA from isolated chromosomes. Comparison of sequences from wild-type parental chromosome with chromosomes from multiple independently derived mutants identifies causative mutations in a single candidate gene or a noncoding sequence. MutChromSeq does not rely on recombination-based genetic mapping and does not exclude any DNA sequence from being targeted.
