Black-eyed pea gene expression atlas egume research and cultivar development are important for sustainable food production, especially of high-protein seed. Thanks to the development of deep-sequencing technologies, crop species have been taken to the front line, even without completion of their genome sequences. Black-eyed pea (Vigna unguiculata) is a legume species widely grown in semi-arid regions, which has high potential to provide stable seed protein production in a broad range of environments, including drought conditions.

Nematode Management in Annual Crops with Emphasis on Host Plant Resistance Cowpea is one of the most important food and forage legumes in drier regions of the tropics and subtropics. Cowpea is a susceptible host of root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp., RKN) and infection results in significant yield loss. Previous studies demonstrated that RKN resistance in cowpea is controlled by at least two dominant genes Rk and Rk2, localized in two major QTLs, Rkn-1 and Rkn-2. The aim of the present work was to select candidate genes for RKN resistance based on transcriptome prof......[More] University of California – Riverside
