Hi chandra,
I don't have experience with plants, but regarding the identification of transgene insertion sites in murine genomic DNA there are a couple of popular strategies. One is "inverse PCR" and the other is "gene walking" (there are several kits available-check out Both of which may be applicable to your system and there are plenty of protocols on the net.
