Chickpea SNP Markers


  • A total of 1,986 and 37,954 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were predicted in kabuli/desi and kabuli/wild genotypes, respectively by Agarwal 2012. Table1, Table2.
  • Azam 2012 a nonredundant set of 4543 SNPs were identified between two chickpea genotypes ICC_4958 and ICC_1882, together with the chickpea trancriptome assembly (CaTA).Table.
  • Gaur 2012 reported 1,022 genome-wide single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in chickpea through the next generation sequencing of two genotypes, i.e. Cicer arietinum (ICC_4958) and its wild progenitor C. reticulatum (PI489777), parents of an inter-specific reference mapping population in chickpea. Table.
  • Hiremath 2012 reported 2,486 SNPs in chickpea, which were compiled using four different approaches, namely (i) Solexa/Illumina sequencing (1,409), (ii) amplicon sequencing of tentative orthologous genes (TOGs) (604), (iii) mining of expressed sequence tags (ESTs) (286) and (iv) sequencing of candidate genes (187). Table.
  • Hiremath 2011 identified 495 SNPs using tentative unique sequences generated by the next generation sequencing technologies such as Roche/454 and Illumina/Solexa from drought-challenged root tissues of two chickpea genotypes.
  • Varshney 2011 reported a total of 184 putative SNPs identified using 1,499 ESTs generated from 26 different Cicer species in-silico.
  • Nayak 2010 developed 71 gene-based SNP markers from transcript sequences that are highly conserved between chickpea and its near relative Medicago truncatula Table.
  • Varshney 2009 reported 21,405 high confidence SNPs from 742 contigs (with ≥ 5 ESTs). Contigs were developed by using a total of 20,162 (18,435 high quality) drought- and salinity- responsive ESTs that were generated from ten different root tissue cDNA libraries of chickpea.
  • Rajesh 2008 determined naturally abundant single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in coding and genomic regions between FLIP 84-92C (C. arietinum) and PI 599072 (C. reticulatum).
