NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – An international team led by investigators in India and China has sequenced hundreds of global chickpea accessions, uncovering clues to the crop plant's domestication and spread around the world. 

The researchers resequenced the genomes of more than 400 chickpea lines from 45 countries to narrow in on some 4.97 million SNPs that were subsequently used for a genome-wide association analysis highlighting SNP markers and genes with ties to more than a dozen agriculturally important traits, such as drought or pest resistance.
