An intraspecific linkage map of the chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) genome based on sequence tagged microsatellite site and resistance gene analog markers
Abstract An intraspecific linkage map of the chickpea genome based on STMS as anchor markers, was established using an F2 population of chickpea cultivars with contrasting disease reactions toExpand

Genetic diversity estimates in Cicer using AFLP analysis
Amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) analysis was used to evaluate the genetic variation among cultivated chickpea and wild Cicer relatives. In total, 214 marker loci were assessed, of whichExpand

Genetics of resistance to ascochyta blight (Ascochyta lentis) of lentil and the identification of closely linked RAPD markers
Abstract Foliar resistance to Ascochyta lentis is controlled at a single major locus by a dominant gene (AbR1) in the lentil accession ILL5588 (cv ‘Northfield’). Flanking RAPD markers that areExpand

Morphological and molecular discrimination of Colletotrichum truncatum causing anthracnose on lentil in Canada
Colletotrichum truncatum is an important exotic pathogen threat to the Australian lentil industry. Canadian isolates of C. truncatum from lentil were assessed for morphological and molecularExpand

Morphological and molecular characterization of Colletotrichum species from herbaceous plants in Thailand
Thirty-four isolates of Colletotrichum spp. were isolated from banana, ginger, Euphatorium thymifolia, soybean, longan, mango and Draceana sanderiana. They included endophytes from healthy plants andExpand

QTL analysis for ascochyta blight resistance in an intraspecific population of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)
In both controlled environment and the field, six QTLs for ascochyta blight resistance were identified in three regions of the genome of an intraspecific population of chickpea using the IDS andExpand

Inheritance of Seed Size in Chickpea ('Cicer arietinum' L.) and Identification of QTL Based on 100-seed Weight and Seed Size Index
Chickpea is valued for its nutritive seed composition which is high in protein content and used increasingly as a substitute for animal protein. High quality seed has the potential to attract premiumExpand

Phylogeny, phylogeography and genetic diversity of the Pisum genus
The tribe Fabeae (formerly Vicieae) contains some of humanity's most important grain legume crops, namely Lathyrus (grass pea/sweet pea/chickling vetches; about 160 species); Lens (lentils; 4Expand

Integration of EST-SSR markers of Medicago truncatula into intraspecific linkage map of lentil and identification of QTL conferring resistance to ascochyta blight at seedling and pod stages
Microsatellite markers have been extensively utilised in the leguminosae for genome mapping and identifying major loci governing traits of interest for eventual marker-assisted selection (MAS). TheExpand

Pea (Pisum sativum L.) in the Genomic Era
Pea (Pisum sativum L.) was the original model organism used in Mendel’s discovery (1866) of the laws of inheritance, making it the foundation of modern plant genetics. However, subsequent progress inExpand
