Faba bean (Vicia faba L.) is an important food legume crop, grown for human consumption globally including in China, Turkey, Egypt and Ethiopia. Although genetic gain has been made through conventional selection and breeding efforts, this could be substantially improved through the application of molecular methods. For this, a set of reliable molecular(More)
Genetic diversity and relationships of 802 faba bean (Vicia faba L.) landraces and varieties from different geographical locations of China and abroad were examined using ISSR markers. A total of 212 repeatable amplified bands were generated with 11 ISSR primers, of which 209 were polymorphic. Accessions from North China showed highest genetic diversity,(More)
UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY Expressed sequence tag (ESTs)-derived microsatellite markers were developed in Lathyrus sativus by screening the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) database. The usefulness of these novel markers was validated for size polymorphism among grasspea accessions. • METHODS AND RESULTS Three hundred(More)
