Table 3 Summary of the mutation rate and TILLING mutants

From: Applying genotyping (TILLING) and phenotyping analyses to elucidate gene function in a chemically induced sorghum mutant population

Gene names Mutants screened Amplicon size (bp) Identified mutants Mutation rate* (kb)
1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate oxidase (ACO1) 768 900 0 0
caffeic acid O-methyltransferase (COMT) 768 1013 2 1/312
myoinositol kinase 1 (MIK1) 768 1457 2 1/483
phytochrome A (PHYA) 768 854 1 1/502
Total 768 4224 5 1/526
  1. *For calculation of the mutation rate, sequences were removed 100 bp from each end due to the base ambiguity.
