Terminal drought is one of the major constraints in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.), causing more than 50% production losses. With the objective of accelerating genetic understanding and crop improvement through genomicsassisted breeding, a draft genome sequence has been assembled for the CDC Frontier variety. In this context, 544.73Mb of sequence data were assembled, capturing of 73.8% of the genome in scaffolds. In addition, large-scale genomic resources including several thousand simple… CONTINUE READING
