Progress in interspecific hybridization between Cicer arietinum and wild species C. bijugum

  title={Progress in interspecific hybridization between Cicer arietinum and wild species C. bijugum},
  author={Nalini Mallikarjuna and Deepak R. Jadhav and Nagamani and C Amudhavalli and David A. Hoisington},
This paper reports the production of hybrid plants between C. arietinum and C. bijugum in vitro and the transfer of hybrid plants to soil. Four chickpea cultivars, ICCV 92318, ICCV 2, ICCV 10 and KAK 2, were used as female parents. The wild species C. bijugum (accession ILWC 73) from germplasm collection at the International Centre for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas, Aleppo, Syria, was used as male parent. Seeds of cultivated and wild chickpea were sown in the glasshouse and in the… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Results showed that the wild donors contributed several positive alleles for yield and yield contributing traits and the backcrossing improved the characters of the progenies by reducing the genetic load.
Poorly formed chloroplasts are barriers to successful interspecific hybridization in chickpea following in vitro embryo rescue
Findings from characterization of this valuable breeding material are reported, as a step towards a better understanding of albinism in chickpea wide hybrids and other plant tissue cultures.
Advanced backcross strategy for alien introgression for productivity enhancing traits in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)
The study suggested that one or two backcrosses are required to reduce linkage drag of undesirable traits from the wild donors to introgress productivity enhancing traits from wild to cultivated chickpea.
Albinism in Plants: A Major Bottleneck in Wide Hybridization, Androgenesis and Doubled Haploid Culture
This review focuses on albinism following interspecific crosses or development of doubled haploids facilitated by tissue culture experiments, underlying mechanisms, and the possibilities for dealing with this important biotechnological limitation.
Current Perspectives on Introgression Breeding in Food Legumes
The gains through introgression breeding are significant and underline the need of bringing it in the purview of mainstream breeding while deploying tools and techniques to increase the recombination rate in wide crosses and reduce the linkage drag.
Legume Crops Phylogeny and Genetic Diversity for Science and Breeding
This review aims to combine the phylogenetic and genetic diversity approaches to better illustrate the origin, domestication history and preserved germplasm of major legume crops from 13 genera of six tribes and to indicate further potential both for science and agriculture.
Sauvetage d'embryons chez les légumineuses alimentaires en général et dans le genre Phaseolus en particulier (synthèse bibliographique)
L'amelioration genetique de Phaseolus vulgaris L.m., utilisees comme parents femelles, donne souvent lieu a des avortements d'embryons au stade de developpement globulaire ou cordiforme jeune, mais avec des pourcentages de reussite tres faibles.
Characterization and identification of annual wild Cicer species for seed protein and mineral concentrations for chickpea improvement
Assigned to Associate Editor Luigi Guarino. Abstract Developing nutrient-rich crop cultivars is the most economic strategy to combat malnutrition resulting from protein and mineral deficiencies.
Genetic Resources of Chickpea ( Cicer arietinum L.) and Their Utilization
Direct transfer of genes by hybridization has proved to be nearly impossible as the cultigen shows very poor or no crossability with any of the wild species except the progenitor species, so efforts are being made to integrate genetic maps with physical maps.


Ovule and embryo culture to obtain hybrids from interspecific incompatible pollinations in chickpea
The paper summarises the embryo rescue techniques developed for chickpea, by the use of which hybrid plants between C. arietinum and C. pinnatifidum were produced and emphasises the effect of genotype to successfully obtain hybrids.
Induction of Androgenesis as a Consequence of Wide Crossing in Chickpea
This is the first report of the production of multicellular microspores as a result of wide crossing, androgenesis was observed in a wide cross of Cicer arietinum × C. pinnatifidum.
A linkage map of the chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) genome based on recombinant inbred lines from a C. arietinum×C. reticulatum cross: localization of resistance genes for fusarium wilt races 4 and 5
The integrated molecular marker map of the chickpea genome was established using 130 recombinant inbred lines from a wide cross between a cultivar resistant to fusarium wilt caused by Fusarium oxysporum Schlecht to serve as a basis for marker-assisted selection and map-based cloning of fusaria wilt resistance genes and other agronomically important genes in future.
Plant regeneration from cell suspension cultures of Vigna aconitifolia
Plant regeneration has been achieved routinely from established cell suspension culture lines of Vigna aconitifolia (moth bean), a highly drought tolerant grain legume, from three-week-old leaf callus.
Natural outcrossing in chickpea
The material studied consisted of simple-leaved F2 segregates in four populations which derived from crossing simple-leaved and compound-leaved material in which simple leaf was monogenically
