Title: Cotton plant gene

Abstract: Nucleotide sequences of cotton plant cDNA clones randomly selected are determined. Homology search is performed between the sequences and known gene sequences registered in the data base. Thus a gene, which controls the fiber formation mechanism in cotton plant and which can be used for industrially useful improvement, is isolated from clones having homology to a gene in the data base.
