Lupin genome sequenced

Researchers from China and Australia have completed a draft genome sequence for the narrow-leaved or sweet lupin (Lupinis augustifolius). Lupins are the most recently domesticated crop in major agricultural cultivation. Data from the study have enabled researchers to identify, among others, a candidate gene associated with resistance to the major lupin disease, anthracnose (Colletotrichum lupini). The researchers sequenced the genomes of the high-yielding, disease-resistant cultivar, Tanjil, which is resistant to phomopsis stem blight (Diaporthe toxica), grey leaf spot (Stemphylium botryosum), cucumber mosaic virus transmission, and aphid colonisation. Details of the study have been published in the journal, PloS One.
