Lens culinaris (lentil) genome view



     Lineage: Eukaryota; Viridiplantae; Streptophyta; Embryophyta; Tracheophyta; Spermatophyta; Magnoliophyta; eudicotyledons; Gunneridae; Pentapetalae; rosids; fabids; Fabales; Fabaceae; Papilionoideae; Fabeae; Lens; Lens culinaris

Lens culinaris is an important crop throughout western Asia, northern Africa, the Indian subcontinent and North America. This is because lentil is a important source of dietary proteins for humans as well as animals. Also the crop is used in the management of soil fertility. One of the major constraints is the fusarium vascular wilt, a soil-borne pathogen. The most economic method of managing this disease is by cultivating resistant varieties. Thus having a genetic map is the essential first step.

Two genetic maps are available in Map Viewer. Detailed information about the maps is available at the BioProject database.
