TLI collaborators develop genetic map for cowpea


Researchers of GCP’s Tropical Legumes Improvement project have developed a high-density consensus genetic map of cowpea, accelerating conventional breeding and facilitating the production of new varieties of not only cowpea but also other legumes such as soybean and common bean. Results of this study can be found in an online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, are also highlighted in a University of California–Riverside press release.
