The 3366 chickpea genomes for research and breeding
Journal: 2021/December - Trends in Plant Science
Genome sequences provide an unprecedented resource to rapidly develop modern crops. A recent paper by Varshney et al. provides genome variation maps of 3366 chickpea accessions. Here, we highlight how this breakthrough research can fundamentally change breeding practices of chickpea and potentially other crops.
