A polymerase chain reaction (PCR) based procedure for the isolation of genes in transposon or T-DNA tagging approaches has been developed. The method can be generally applied and allows the rapid isolation of putative gene sequences even in the presence of high numbers of insertion sequences. The technique has been used successfully for the isolation of the maize Bx1 gene tagged by a Mutator element.
