Towards marker‐assisted selection in pulses: a review
With 2 figures and 2 tables Abstract Pulses are important sources of proteins in vegetarian diet. However, genetic improvement in production and productivity of pulse crops has been very… Expand
Breeding for abiotic stresses in pigeonpea
Pigeonpea, often considered as a drought tolerant crop, has the distinct advantage of having a large range of variation for maturity, leading to its adaptation to a wide range of environments and… Expand
Androgenesis and doubled-haploid production in food legumes.
Efficient haploid induction in wheat by using pollen of Imperata cylindrica.
Intergeneric hybridization between wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and a wild weedy species, Imperata cylindrica (2n = 20) resulted in the recovery of a high frequency of wheat haploids, which were… Expand

Inheritance and molecular tagging of MYMIV resistance gene in blackgram (Vigna mungo L. Hepper)
Yellow Mosaic disease (YMD) is one of the most destructive diseases of blackgram (Vigna mungo) causing heavy yield losses every year. Mungbean Yellow Mosaic India Virus (MYMIV) is one of the YMD… Expand
Genomic resources for improving food legume crops
SUMMARY Food legumes are the main source of dietary protein for a large part of the world’s population, and also play an important role in maintaining soil fertility through nitrogen fixation.… Expand
