Fast neutron irradiation and cloning

<x-flowed>We have two questions about our flowering -time mutants that were
generated by fast neutron irradiation (at the IAEA in Vienna).
1. What is known about the size of deletions produced in Arabidopsis
following fast neutron irradiation?
2. Can the larger deletions caused by fast neutron irradiation be
used as a basis for cloning the mutations eg by subtractive
hybridization. Is there anyone who has tried this?
