Mining allelic diversity associated with drought and salinity tolerance in reference subset of chickpea germplasm collections.

Abstract

Chickpea is the 4th largest grain legume crop, predominantly grown in Asia. Drought, salinity, and variations in temperature are the major abiotic constraints. CGIAR genebanks maintain a large collection of chickpea germplasm. For enhancing the utilization of chickpea germplasm in breeding and genomics applications, a global composite collection and reference subset have been developed.
