Development and good breeding in legume models: poise and peas?

Molecular Genetics of Model Legumes



John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK, June 2000

Genomics research involving legumes, an area that is attracting major funding, has two distinct branches – work involving model species, and work involving crops. This meeting aimed to stimulate communication between these two groups. The major research areas covered included leaf, flower and seed development, establishment of symbioses, pathogen interactions and applied aspects (from the conservation of legume ecotypes to products required by the market).
