Large scale sequencing of randomly selected cDNA clones was carried out to investigate the feasibility of this method for isolating plant genes. cDNA libraries were made using mRNA prepared from suspension- cultured cells of rice [Oryza sativa L.). Partial nucleotide sequences of 830 individual cDNA clones have been determined and compared with the GenBank database. Approximately 8 of the cDNA clones could be identi- fied as particular genes. This method provides the opportunity to isolate large numbers of plant genes.
