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 genome, it is necessary to rely on synteny with related species in order to identify candidate genes responsible for the character under study… CONTINUE READING
