Abstract

A new study reports the genome of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) and genome-wide resequencing data from both wild and domesticated accessions. These data confirm that common bean was domesticated at least twice, in Mesoamerica and South America, and also provide a framework to identify genes that contributed to the phenotypic changes associated with domestication.
