This study reports the use of Genotyping-by-Sequencing (GBS) for large-scale SNP discovery and simultaneous genotyping of recombinant inbred lines (RILs) of an intra-specific mapping population of chickpea contrasting for seed traits. A total of 119,672 raw SNPs were discovered, which after stringent filtering revealed 3,977 high quality SNPs of which 39.5%(More)
Genetic diversity and relationships within and among members of the primary gene pool of chickpea, including 38 accessions of Cicer arietinum, six of C. reticulatum,, and four of C. echinospermum, were investigated using 31 ISSR markers. The study revealed moderate diversity, detecting 141 fragments, of which 79 (56%) were polymorphic. Averages were 0.125(More)
Seed weight and plant height are important agronomic traits and contribute to seed yield. The objective of this study was to identify QTLs underlying these traits using an intra-specific mapping population of chickpea. A F11 population of 177 recombinant inbred lines derived from a cross between SBD377 (100-seed weight- 48 g and plant height- 53 cm) and(More)
The large-scale mining and high-throughput genotyping of novel gene-based allelic variants in natural mapping population are essential for association mapping to identify functionally relevant molecular tags governing useful agronomic traits in chickpea. The present study employs an alternative time-saving, non-laborious and economical pool-based EcoTILLING(More)
Quantitative differences in chlorophyll content and the relationship of chlorophyll, total carotenoid content, root length density and thousand grain weight to yield per plant were studied in 26 pearl millet lines comprising female parents from diverse sources of male sterility (A1, A4 and A5 systems), male elite restorers of A1 cytoplasm and 16 F1 hybrids.(More)
A combinatorial genomics-assisted breeding strategy encompassing association analysis, genetic mapping and expression profiling is found most promising for quantitative dissection of complex traits in crop plants. The present study employed GWAS (genome-wide association study) using 24,405 SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) obtained with(More)
The present study was conducted to evaluate the genetic divergence among thirty-eight elite pearl millet genotypes using Mahalanobis D2 statistics for thirteen different agronomic, morphological and thermotolerance traits, under rain-fed condition. Analysis of variance indicated considerable diversity among genotypes showing significant variability for all(More)
Micronutrient malnutrition, especially deficiency of two mineral elements, iron [Fe] and zinc [Zn] in the developing world needs urgent attention. Pearl millet is one of the best crops with many nutritional properties and is accessible to the poor. We report findings of the first attempt to mine favorable alleles for grain iron and zinc content through(More)
The discovery and large-scale genotyping of informative gene-based markers is essential for rapid delineation of genes/QTLs governing stress tolerance and yield component traits in order to drive genetic enhancement in chickpea. A genome-wide 119169 and 110491 ISM (intron-spanning markers) from 23129 desi and 20386 kabuli protein-coding genes and 7454 in(More)
In this paper an analysis of resonant frequency of electrically thin and thick rectangular patch antenna analysis is done using emotional back propagation network by providing inputs, which are length of the patch, width of the patch, height of the patch and relative permittivity. The analysis can be used in reducing a significant bottleneck like low(More)
