A simplified cDNA cloning protocol was elaborated, easily scalable to very different sizes of plant tissue. The mRNA fraction was extracted from a single wheat kernel with oligo dT magnetic beads. The solid-phase mRNA was transcribed into single-strand cDNA by reverse transcription. Then DNA tags were incorporated into the ds cDNA fragments prior to PCR amplification. The amplified DNA was ligated to a T overhang cloning vector and some of the resulting clones were sequenced. These sequences were identified by BLASTN search in wheat EST databases.
