The history of the cultivated peanut involves natural evolution and human domestication. Despite the economic importance of peanuts and the many studies carried out on their cytology and genetic variability, current knowledge on the origin of the cultigen is still very limited compared with other major crops. In this context, we analyzed the polymorphisms of some non-coding cpDNA regions and the non-transcribed spacer of the nuclear 5S rDNA of the six botanical varieties of the two subspecies… CONTINUE READING
