Analysis of Agrobacterium-transferred DNA (T-DNA) revealed strong correlations between transgene structures and floral pigmentation patterns from chalcone synthase (chs) co-suppression among 47 Petunia transformants. Presented here are the full details of T-DNA structural organization in that population. Sixteen transformants (34%) carried one T-DNA copy while 31 (66%) carried 106 complete and partial T-DNA elements in 54 linkage groups. Thirty linkage groups contained multiple T-DNA copies; 15 of these contained only contiguously repeated copies, 8 contained only dispersed copies and 7 contained both. Right-border inverted repeats were three times more frequent than left-border inverted or direct repeats. Large fragments of binary-vector sequences were linked to the T-DNA in seven plants.
