Species relationships in the subgenus Ceratotropis (genus Vigna) as revealed by RAPD analysis
TLDR
The genetic variation among 23 accessions of 5 species in the subgenus Ceratotropis, genus Vigna, were investigated by random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis and the largest intraspecific variation was found in V. radiata (mungbean), in which wild forms were highly different from each other and from cultivated forms.

The Genetics of Domestication of the Azuki Bean (Vigna angularis)
TLDR
Genes found related to germination and flowering time in cultivated azuki bean may confer a selective advantage to the hybrid derivatives under some ecological conditions and may explain why azukibean has evolved as a crop complex in Japan. Expand
Evaluation of soybean germplasm conserved in NIAS genebank and development of mini core collections
TLDR
These selected sets of germplasm will provide an effective platform for enhancing soybean diversity studies and assist in finding novel traits for crop improvement. Expand
Development of a black gram [Vigna mungo (L.) Hepper] linkage map and its comparison with an azuki bean [Vigna angularis (Willd.) Ohwi and Ohashi] linkage map
TLDR
The present study suggests that the azuki bean SSR markers can be widely used for Asian Vigna species and the black gram genetic linkage map will assist in improvement of this crop. Expand
Simultaneous site-directed mutagenesis of duplicated loci in soybean using a single guide RNA
TLDR
The data indicate that continuous induction of mutations in the whole plant and advancing generations of transgenic plants enable efficient simultaneous site-directed mutagenesis in duplicated loci in soybean. Expand
Pathogenic diversity of Phytophthora sojae and breeding strategies to develop Phytophthora-resistant soybeans
TLDR
What is currently known about pathogenic races of P. sojae in the USA and Japan is reviewed, selection of sources of Rps genes or minor genes providing partial resistance, and the current state and future scope of breeding Phytophthora-resistant soybean cultivars are reviewed. Expand
On the phylogeny and biogeography of the genus Oryza
TLDR
Current understanding of angiosperm and monocot phylogeny is discussed in relation to the emergence of Oryza and a new hypothesis is presented to explain the present day distribution ofOryza species. Expand
Genetic Diversity of the Vigna Germplasm from Thailand and Neighboring Regions Revealed by AFLP Analysis
TLDR
Using newly collected wild and cultivated germplasm of Vigna from Thailand and outgroup accessions AFLP analysis was conducted to clarify genetic diversity and relationships, the results suggest that cultivated V. mungo evolved from wild relatives in a single domestication event. Expand
Natural variation in the genes responsible for maturity loci E1, E2, E3 and E4 in soybean.
TLDR
The study advances understanding of the combined roles of the E1-E4 loci in flowering and geographic adaptation, and suggests the existence of unidentified genes for flowering in soybean. Expand
Construction of a Genetic Linkage Map and Genetic Analysis of Domestication Related Traits in Mungbean (Vigna radiata)
TLDR
The useful QTLs for seed size, pod dehiscence and pod maturity that have not been found in other Asian Vigna species were identified in mungbean, and theseQTLs may play the important role as new gene resources for otherAsian VignA species. Expand
