Abstract

Narrow-leafed lupin (Lupmus angustitolius), an important crop of agricultural systems, suffers from several limitations including i) its narrow genetic base and ii) its susceptibility to various pathogens, which prevent broader adoption of the crop. This research employed next-generation-sequencing and bioinformatic approaches to identify the useful source of genetic variation in this crop and to develop genomic resources for two of its fungal pathogens. We found that western Mediterranean is the variability hotspot and founder population of narrow-leafed lupin. Hence, the methods applied here prove to have a great potential for crop improvement and to be applied to other crop research.
