Genotyping by sequencing GBS of 73 Turkish landrace and modern cultivated accessions of Cicer arietinum (chickpea)

Identifiers: SRA: SRP171104
BioProject: PRJNA507486
Study Type: 
Abstract: Due to its high nutritional value, chickpea is one of the most important and cost-effective legumes for human diet. Nutrient elements, such as Cu, P, K have numerous essential functions for the human metabolism. In thisstudy, association mapping of the seed Cu, P and K concentrations were performed on a population consisting of 107 Cicer reticulatum and 73 Cicer arietinum individuals in four environments (two locations x two years).A total of 121,840 SNPs were genotyped across 180 individuals by GBS analysis. The association mapping between the SNP markers and the seed Cu, P, K concentrations were identified and eight SNPs were found tobe significantly associated with three nutrient elements in more than two environments This research suggests that association mapping is a useful methodology for the identification of genes controlling the Cu, P and Kuptake in chickpea seeds for further association mapping, molecular breeding, and marker-assisted selection and plant breeding studies and provides a broader understanding of the relationship between the investigatedCicer species and the effects of environmental conditions.
