Molecular biogeographic study of recently described B- and A-genome Arachis species, also providing new insights into the origins of cultivated peanut.


The cultivated peanut Arachis hypogaea is a tetraploid, likely derived from A- and B-genome species. Reproductive isolation of the cultigen has resulted in limited genetic variability for important traits. Artificial hybridizations using selected diploid parents have introduced alleles from wild species, but improved understanding of recently classified B… (More)
