Beans (Phaseolus spp.) – model food legumes
Globally, 800 million people are malnourished. Heavily subsidised farmers in rich countries produce sufficient surplus food to feed the hungry, but not at a price the poor can afford. Even donatingExpand

Development of a genome-wide anchored microsatellite map for common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)
A total of 150 microsatellite markers developed for common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) were tested for parental polymorphism and used to determine the positions of 100 genetic loci on an integratedExpand

Phaseolin-protein Variability in Wild Forms and Landraces of the Common Bean(Phaseolus vulgaris): Evidence for Multiple Centers of Domestication
A sample of 106 wild forms and 99 landraces of common bean (Thaseolus vulgaris) from Middle America and the Andean region of South America were screened for variability in phaseolin seed proteinExpand

Integration of simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers into a molecular linkage map of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.).
Microsatellite or simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers have been successfully used for genomic mapping, DNA fingerprinting, and marker-assisted selection in many plant species. Here we report theExpand

Towards an integrated linkage map of common bean. 4. Development of a core linkage map and alignment of RFLP maps
Abstract Three RFLP maps, as well as several RAPD maps have been developed in common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.). In order to align these maps, a core linkage map was established in the recombinantExpand
