  • Offers a comprehensive overview of the state of the art on the genomics of the common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) and related crop species in the genus PhaseolusProvides insights into the importance of the genomic information, both nuclear and organelle
  • Unravels the intriguing evolutionary process associated with the two independent domestications of the common bean and with the processes of the other species of the genus
  • Includes a complete review of the qualitative and quantitative data on several sets of genes of particular interest for breeding
  • Gives examples of how genomic information can be used in the basic and applied study of particular sets of genes or repeated sequences
  • Highlights the importance of the common bean as a model species for legume research, as well as of genomic information for ongoing research on the species

About this book

This book provides insights into the genetics and the latest advances in genomics research on the common bean, offering a timely overview of topics that are pertinent for future developments in legume genomics. The common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) is the most important grain legume crop for food consumption worldwide, as well as a model for legume research, and the availability of the genome sequence has completely changed the paradigm of the ongoing research on the species. Key topics covered include the numerous genetic and genomic resources, available tools, the identified genes and quantitative trait locus (QTL) identified, and there is a particular emphasis on domestication. It is a valuable resource for students and researchers interested in the genetics and genomics of the common bean and legumes in general.
