Late blight caused by the oomycete Phytophthora infestans is the most important fungal disease in potato cultivation worldwide. Resistance to late blight is controlled by a few major genes (R genes) which can be easily overcome by new races of P. infestans and/or by an unknown number of genes expressing a quantitative type of resistance which may be more(More)
This study presents the development of an enhanced map in faba bean. The map contains 258 loci, mostly gene-based markers, organized in 16 linkage groups that expand 1,875 cM, with an average inter-marker distance of 7.26 cM. The combination of EST-derived markers with a number of markers physically located or previously ascribed to chromosomes by trisomic(More)
Faba bean (Vicia faba L.) is among the earliest domesticated crops from the Near East. Today this legume is a key protein feed and food worldwide and continues to serve an important role in culinary traditions throughout Middle East, Mediterranean region, China and Ethiopia. Adapted to a wide range of soil types, the main faba bean breeding objectives are(More)
Faba bean (Vicia faba L.) cultivation has declined in recent years due to several factors, including diseases and anti-nutritional compounds in the seeds. The introduction of disease resistance and the elimination of anti-nutritional factors in new varieties are important objectives in any breeding program for the species. Because of the faba bean’s huge(More)
Broomrapes are holoparasitic plants which infect faba bean (Vicia faba L.), among other legumes. Here, we aimed to identify and validate quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for broomrape resistance in the cross 29H × Vf136 and to investigate the existence of common and specific genomic regions against Orobanche crenata and O. foetida. A genetic map including 171(More)
A composite linkage map was constructed based on two interspecific recombinant inbred line populations derived from crosses between Cicer arietinum (ILC72 and ICCL81001) and Cicer reticulatum (Cr5-10 or Cr5-9). These mapping populations segregate for resistance to ascochyta blight (caused by Ascochyta rabiei), fusarium wilt (caused by Fusarium oxysporum f.(More)
Faba bean is an important food crop worldwide. However, progress in faba bean genomics lags far behind that of model systems due to limited availability of genetic and genomic information. Using the Illumina platform the faba bean transcriptome from leaves of two lines (29H and Vf136) subjected to Ascochyta fabae infection have been characterized. De novo(More)
The aim of the present work was to determinate if resistant gene analogs (RGAs) previously identified and characterized by our group are involved in the early response to Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceris (Foc). The expression profile of RGAs was determined using quantitative real-time polymerase chain-reaction (qPCR) in WR315 (resistant) and ILC3279(More)
Ferrous ion biooxidation is a process with many promising industrial applications: mainly regeneration of ferric ion as an oxidizing reagent in bioleaching processes and depuration of acid mine drainage. The flooded packed-bed bioreactor (FPB) is the design that leads to the highest biooxidation rate. In this bioreactor, biomass is immobilized in a biofilm(More)
