Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) is recognized as an important crop to improve global food security. It has gained international recognition because of the nutritional value of its seeds and its broad agronomic resilience. Although several studies have attempted to characterize the genetic diversity of quinoa, none have focused on evaluating germplasm from Ecuador; the latter considered a relevant subcenter of diversity for the species. In this study, 84 accessions representing the species… 
Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.): Genetic Diversity According to ISSR and SCoT Markers, Relative Gene Expression, and Morpho-Physiological Variation under Salinity Stress
TLDR
The genotypes M-28 and LINE-6 were identified as the most and least salinity-tolerant, respectively, among the quinoa genotypes.
Morphological and Molecular Characterization of Quinoa Genotypes
TLDR
Analysis of molecular variance showed that most of the genetic variation was because of differences within populations (86%) and the wide variability of the genotypes studied herein is of great importance for quinoa breeders.
Quinoa in Ecuador: Recent Advances under Global Expansion
TLDR
The advances of quinoa research in Ecuador are updated across different topics, including (a) current quinoa production situation with a focus on breeding progress, (b) traditional seed production, and (c) the impact of the work of the nongovernment organization “European Committee for Training and Agriculture” with quinoa farmers in Chimborazo province.
Quinoa Phenotyping Methodologies: An International Consensus
TLDR
Mature plant phenotyping is a central aspect of this paper, including detailed descriptions and the provision of phenotypesing cards to facilitate consistency in data collection and high-throughput methods for multi-temporal Phenotyping based on remote sensing technologies are described.
DNA fingerprinting and genetic diversity analysis of world quinoa germplasm using iPBS-retrotransposon marker system
TLDR

Genetic structure in cultivated quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.), a reflection of landscape structure in Northwest Argentina
TLDR
Results showed a great level of genetic diversity, differing from previous reports about the geographical distribution of quinoa variability, and an eastward decreasing genetic diversity gradient was found.
Assessment of genetic diversity patterns in Chilean quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) germplasm using multiplex fluorescent microsatellite markers
TLDR
The objective of this study was to characterize and quantify the genetic diversity within 28 Altiplano and 31 coastal Chilean accessions of quinoa using microsatellite markers and provides the quinoa scientific community with a new set of easy to use and highly informative genetic markers.
Development and Use of Microsatellite Markers for Germplasm Characterization in Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.)
TLDR
These microsatellites markers are an ideal resource for use in managing quinoa germplasm, trait mapping and marker-assisted breeding strategies and the wide cross-species transportability of these markers may extend their value to research involving other Chenopodium species.
Breeding quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.): potential and perspectives
TLDR
New molecular tools available for the existing quinoa breeding programs, which are critically examined in this review, will enable us to tackle the limitations of allotetraploidy and genetic specificities.
Assessment of genetic diversity in the USDA and CIP-FAO international nursery collections of quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) using microsatellite markers
TLDR
Heterogeneity was observed in 32% of the quinoa accessions at a given locus and suggests that many of these accessions represent heterogeneous seed lots or landraces and hypotheses regarding quinoa's centre of diversity are discussed, including highland and lowland ecotype clustering patterns.
Development of novel InDel markers and genetic diversity in Chenopodium quinoa through whole-genome re-sequencing
TLDR
The large number of SNPs and InDels identified in this study demonstrated that the quinoa genome is enriched with genomic variations, demonstrating significant genetic differentiation between the Andean highland type of quinoa and the Chilean coastal type.
The genome of Chenopodium quinoa
TLDR
The assembly of a high-quality, chromosome-scale reference genome sequence for quinoa was produced using single-molecule real-time sequencing in combination with optical, chromosomes-contact and genetic maps, which facilitated the identification of the transcription factor likely to control the production of anti-nutritional triterpenoid saponins found in quinoa seeds.
Simple sequence repeat marker development and genetic mapping in quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.)
TLDR
The linkage map presented here is the first SSR-based map in quinoa and contains 275 markers, including 200 SSR, and will be particularly valuable for research in laboratories in Andean regions of South America.
Quinua and Relatives (Chenopodium sect.Chenopodium subsect.Celluloid)
TLDR
Comparative analysis of leaf morphology and allozyme frequencies have demonstrated that Andean populations, both domesticated and free-living, represent an exceptionally homogeneous unit that is well differentiated from allied domesticates of coastal Chile(quingua) and freeliving populations of the Argentine lowlands (ajara).
Estudio de flujo de genes en quinua (chenopodium quinoa w.) en campo de agricultores mediante el uso de marcadores microsatélites
TLDR
The data demonstrate that the genetic diversity of quinoa is dynamic confirming the hypothesis of spontaneous gene flow in farmer’s field and indicates a clear genetic differentiation among population of wild and cultivated.
