To make progress in genome analysis of azuki bean (Vigna angularis) a genetic linkage map was constructed from a backcross population of (V. nepalensis x V. angularis) x V.angularis consisting of 187 individuals. A total of 486 markers—205 simple sequence repeats (SSRs), 187 amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs) and 94 restriction fragment length(More)
The research objectives were to determine aspects of the population dynamics relevant to effective monitoring of gene flow in the soybean crop complex in Japan. Using 20 microsatellite primers, 616 individuals from 77 wild soybean (Glycine soja) populations were analysed. All samples were of small seed size (< 0.03 g), were directly collected in the field(More)
Bruchid resistance, controlled by a single dominant gene (Br) in a wild mungbean accession (TC1966), has been incorporated into cultivated mungbean (Vigna radiata). The resistance gene simultaneously confers inhibitory activity against the bean bug, Riptortus clavatus Thunberg (Hemiptera: Alydidae). The resultant isogenic line (BC20 generation) was(More)
The genetic diversity and phylogenetic relationships among species in the genus Vigna subgenus Ceratotropis were investigated using sequence data from the ribosomal DNA ITS and atpB-rbcL intergenic spacer of chloroplast DNA regions. While both sets of sequences were of similar lengths about 700 bp the rDNA-ITS was more informative than atpB-rbcL having 170%(More)
To gain a better understanding of wild and weedy azuki population structures in relation to the cultigens we have developed simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers based on a new methodology for plant material. In the azuki bean genome, the number of (AG)n and (AC)n motif loci per haploid genome has been estimated to be 3,500 and 2,100, respectively,(More)
The Glycine max (L.) Merr. cultivar Waseshiroge is highly resistant to several races of Phytophthora sojae in Japan. In order to determine which Rps gene might be present in Waseshiroge, 15 differential cultivars were challenged with 12 P. sojae isolates. None had a reaction pattern identical to that of Waseshiroge, indicating that Waseshiroge may contain a(More)
The genetic differences between mungbean and its presumed wild ancestor were analyzed for domestication related traits by QTL mapping. A genetic linkage map of mungbean was constructed using 430 SSR and EST-SSR markers from mungbean and its related species, and all these markers were mapped onto 11 linkage groups spanning a total of 727.6 cM. The present(More)
Genetic differences between azuki bean (Vigna angularis var. angularis) and its presumed wild ancestor (V. angularis var. nipponensis) were resolved into QTL for traits associated with adaptation to their respective distinct habits. A genetic linkage map constructed using progenies from a cross between Japanese cultivated and wild azuki beans covers 92.8%(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to dissect into quantitative trait loci (QTLs) the large morphological and physiological differences between cultivated azuki bean (Vigna angularis) and a wild relative and to infer the commonalities of the QTLs for domestication-related traits across the Asian Vigna and with other warm-season legumes. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The genetics of domestication of yardlong bean [Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp. ssp. unguiculata cv.-gr. sesquipedalis] is of particular interest because the genome of this legume has experienced divergent domestication. Initially, cowpea was domesticated from wild cowpea in Africa; in Asia a vegetable form of cowpea, yardlong bean,(More)
