Reference (see below) Adder's tongue fern ... Vigna unguiculata : 22: 3 Crocus : … Molecules of at least 180 kb in length were selected to generate a BNG map assembly. doi: 10.1007/BF00223813, Fatokun, C. A. Here, we employed an alternative assembly methodology: instead of choosing one assembly, the optical maps were leveraged to merge multiple assemblies in what we call ‘stitching’ (Pan et al., 2018; see Experimental procedures). Almost all (99.83%) of the 957 710 discovered single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs; hereinafter referred as the ‘1M list’) were positioned in the reference sequence, including 49 697 SNPs that can be assayed using the Illumina iSelect Consortium Array (Muñoz‐Amatriaín et al., 2017; Data S2). Walp.). doi: 10.1017/S0007485300018745. Here, a fully homozygous (single haplotype; see Experimental procedures) stock was sequenced using PacBio (Pacific Biosciences of California, Menlo Park, CA, USA) single‐molecule real‐time (SMRT) sequencing. The white list included the genomes of: (i) soybean (G. max; Schmutz et al., 2010; assembly Gmax_275_v2.0); (ii) common bean (P. vulgaris; Schmutz et al., 2014; assembly Pvulgaris_218_v1.0); (iii) adzuki bean (V. angularis; Yang et al., 2015; assembly adzuki.ver3.ref.fa.cor); (iv) mung bean (V. radiata; Kang et al., 2014; assembly Vradi.ver6.cor); and (v) Illumina‐based cowpea draft genome (V. unguiculate; Muñoz‐Amatriaín et al., 2017; assembly v.0.03). The assembled genome was annotated using de novo gene prediction and transcript evidence based on cowpea ESTs (Muchero et al., 2009) and RNA‐seq data from leaf, stem, root, flower and seed tissue (Yao et al., 2016; Santos et al., 2018), and protein sequences of Arabidopsis, common bean, soybean, Medicago, poplar, rice and grape (see Experimental procedures). Plant Sci. As is usually done, 27‐mers that appear only once are excluded because they are considered erroneous, that is to contain sequencing errors. For each of those cases, the number of the common bean chromosome sharing the largest syntenic region with cowpea was adopted, with one exception: two cowpea chromosomes (previous linkage groups/chromosomes #1 and #5) both shared their largest block of synteny with P. vulgaris chromosome Pv08. Etude taxonomique d’un groupe d’espèces des genres Phaseolus et Vigna (V. unguiculata) sur la base de données morphologiques et polliniques, traitées pour l’analyse informatique. 98, 767–782. Walp.) SIW, MMA and TJC contributed to SNP annotation and analysis. The cowpea syntelog of that gene is Vigun08 g217000, according to the genomic segment alignment provided by the GCV using the gene family assignments described above. StL and MMA wrote the manuscript with inputs from TJC, SBC, ADF, JD and AHS. The homogenate was filtered through a 50‐μm nylon mesh to remove debris and kept on ice. The selected gene predictions were improved by PASA. belongs to the family fabaceae with chromosome number 2n= 22. A comparative analysis of these elements suggests that genome size differences between Vigna species are mainly attributable to changes in the amount of Gypsy retrotransposons. When these metrics are combined with minor allele frequency and nearness to a trait determinant, one can choose an optimal set of SNPs for a given constraint, for example cost minimization, on the number of markers. The target database for CLARK/CLARK‐S was comprised of: (i) a representative sample of ~5000 bacterial/viral genomes from NCBI RefSeq; (ii) human genome, Homo sapiens, assembly GRCh38; (iii) Illumina‐based cowpea draft genome, V. unguiculata (Muñoz‐Amatriaín et al., 2017), assembly v0.03); (iv) soybean, Glycine max (Schmutz et al., 2010), assembly Gmax_275_v2.0; (v) common bean, P. vulgaris (Schmutz et al., 2014), assembly Pvulgaris_218_v1.0; (vi) adzuki bean, V. angularis (Yang et al., 2015), assembly adzuki.ver3.ref.fa.cor; (vii) mung bean, V. radiata (Kang et al., 2014), assembly Vradi.ver6.cor; and (viii) a nematode that attacks the roots of cowpea, Meloidogyne incognita (Abad et al., 2008), assembly GCA_900182535.1_Meloidogyne_incognita_V3. For gene models whose CDS overlap with repeats was more than 20%, its Cscore had to be at least 0.9 and homology coverage at least 70% to be selected. The SAUR‐like auxin superfamily contains 138 annotated genes in cowpea, versus 90 and 52 in adzuki and mung bean, respectively. An assembly of the single‐haplotype inbred genome of cowpea IT97K‐499‐35 was developed by exploiting the synergies between single‐molecule real‐time sequencing, optical and genetic mapping, and an assembly reconciliation algorithm. This can result from either differential amplification recently, or differential retention of ancient insertions. Each assembly took about 4–5 days on a 512‐core Torque/PBS server hosted at UC Riverside. Xiong, H., Shi, A., Mou, B., Qin, J., Motes, D., Lu, W., et al. Pure seeds of the fully inbred cowpea accession IT97K‐499‐35 were sterilized and germinated in the dark in crystallization dishes with filter paper and a solution containing antibacterial (cefotaxime, 50 μg ml−1) and antifungal (nystatin, 100 units per ml) agents. in Advances in Cowpea Research. Res. 5, 1529–1530. SS generated gene annotations. 4-8 September 2000. Available at: Pseudochromosomes were obtained by anchoring the scaffold sequences to SNP markers (blast of SNP design sequences, e−50 or less) in 10 genetic maps (Table S4). The elite breeding line IT97K‐499‐35, developed at the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA, Nigeria), was used previously for the development of genome resources (Timko et al., 2008; Muñoz‐Amatriaín et al., 2017). Singh, S. R. (Chichester, England: John Wiley & Sons Ltd, Baffins Lane), Pp 43–Pp 89. A tool called XMView ( developed in‐house that enables the visual inspection of alignments of assembled contigs to two optical maps simultaneously, also displaying consensus genetic map coordinates for SNPs, was used to identify chimeric optical molecules that had to be excluded from the scaffolding step. (2007). A series of checks are carried out before and after the stitching to minimize the possibility of creating mis‐joins. All candidates were annotated for PfamA domains with hmmer3 software (Eddy, 2011) and filtered for false positives by several criteria, the main ones being the presence of at least one typical retrotransposon domain (e.g. “Flavonoid HPLC fingerprints of wild Vigna species,” in Advances in Cowpea Research. Int. AHS and JT annotated and analyzed repeats. An initial library of elements was built by combining the output from Repet, RepeatModeler, LTRharvest/LTRdigest (, elements in the Fabaceae section of the RepBase transposon library (Bao et al., 2015) and our own custom pipeline. Several members of the Phaseoleae tribe are diploid with 2n = 22, but the numbering of chromosomes has been designated independently within and across species by each research group. This region contained 289 Phaseolus genes, of which only one (Phvul.008G285800) was present in the intersection with a list of genes associated with domestication reported in Schmutz et al. mungbean. The diploid chromosome numbers 22 and 24 have been mentioned in literature. In Pv, the Gypsy elements comprise 25% of the genome versus 18% in V. unguiculata, although the Copia elements are 2% less abundant than in cowpea. unguiculata landrace. doi: 10.1007/BF00039599.

When multiple alignments covered the same location in a contig, only the best identity alignment was considered. (2014). Int. The threshold on the PI detector was set to channel 40 and no other gating strategy was applied. As noted below, genome size estimates within this range also were obtained from optical mapping. As summarized in Figure S7 and Table S5, six cowpea chromosomes are largely syntenic with six common bean chromosomes in one‐to‐one relationships, making the numbering conversion straightforward in those cases. Conversely, genes are more abundant in more distal, high‐recombination regions of the chromosomes; there appears to be more duplication of genes within the NBS‐LRR and the SAUR‐like auxin superfamilies compared with other warm‐season legumes that have been sequenced. doi: 10.1007/bf00021923, D’Andrea, A. C., Kahlheber, S., Logan, A. L., Watson, D. J. Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata [L.] Walp.) Gene families lacking cowpea membership are more difficult to interpret biologically, as these tend to be smaller gene families, likely showing stochastic effects of small families ‘falling out of’ larger superfamilies, due to extinction of clusters of genes or to artifactual effects of family construction. This set was constructed to capture genes originating at the legume taxonomic depth, based on orthology relationships and per‐species synonymous‐site rates for legume species and outgroup species. The genotype data from all of the parental lines showed that one of the parents from each of those three populations, but not the other parent, had the same haplotype as IT97K‐499‐35, and hence presumably the same orientation (Data S4). The sum of all these identity scores was computed for each contig, both for the black and the white list. Six cowpea chromosomes (Vu04, Vu06, Vu07, Vu09, Vu10 and Vu11) largely have synteny with single chromosomes in all three other species. B., Emechebe, A. M. (1997). The quality of the chromosome‐level assembly was evaluated using a variety of metrics. Each of the remaining five cowpea chromosomes is related to parts of two P. vulgaris chromosomes. Longwe, L.

Genetic diversity and population structure of cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L. A comparison between cowpea and adzuki bean (Figure S12) showed that IT97K‐499‐35 and adzuki bean genome assemblies have opposite orientations in this region, consistent with the conjecture that the cowpea reference genome is inverted in this region with respect to an ancestral state that has been retained in the wild cowpea accession as well as in this representative congeneric species. Four accessions were tested for each of the two orientations (type A and type B); these were parental lines of some of the 10 genetic maps used for anchoring (Figure S10) and included one wild cowpea (TVNu‐1158).

The GC content in coding exons was higher than in introns plus UTRs (40.82% versus 24.27%, respectively). The differential abundance of Gypsy elements in cowpea amounts to 58 and 56% of the total contribution of TEs to its genome size difference with mung bean and adzuki bean, respectively. An assembly of the single‐haplotype inbred genome of cowpea IT97K‐499‐35 was developed by exploiting the synergies between single‐molecule real‐time sequencing, optical and genetic mapping, and an assembly … When primers were designed to amplify the opposite orientation, there was PCR product only in the type B accessions (Figure S11). Walp. Eight draft assemblies were generated, six of which were produced with canu v1.3 (Berlin et al., 2015; Koren et al., 2017), one with Falcon v0.7.3 (Chin et al., 2016) and one with Abruijn v0.4 (Lin et al., 2016). Plant J. Identification of QTL for perenniality and floral scent in cowpea (Vigna unguiculata [L.] Walp.) It should be noted also that most chromosomes that have a one‐to‐two relationship across these species or genera are consistent with translocations involving the centromeric regions (Figure 3a–c). In addition to Striga considerations, a QTL for pod number (Xu et al., 2013; Qpn.zaas‐3) is located inside the inverted region. and Azospirillum brasilense combined with N rates in cowpea-wheat crop sequence. The small difference between the genome size estimates of Arumuganathan and Earle (1991) and the present work could be due to different values assigned to reference standards, instrument variation between laboratories (Doležel et al., 1998) or actual differences between accessions. Identification and marker-assisted introgression of QTL conferring resistance to bacterial leaf blight in cowpea (Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.). Figure S2. Cowpea was domesticated in Africa (Faris, 1965; D'Andrea et al., 2007), from where it spread into all continents and now is commonly grown in many parts of Asia, Europe, USA, and Central and South America. Table S10. Expansion of SSR content was very moderate in Vu versus Vr, and comprised a smaller genome share than in Va. A similar comparison was made to the 473 Mb genome assembly of P. vulgaris (Schmutz et al., 2014; Pv) with a genome estimated to be only 9% smaller (587 Mbp; Cross‐reference between old and revised chromosome numbers for cowpea (Vu).

A comparative study on nutritive peculiarities of 24 Chinese cowpea cultivars. Hinge v0.41 (Kamath et al., 2017) was also tested on this dataset, but at that time the tool required the entire alignment file (over 2 Tb) to fit in primary memory and we did not have the computational resources to handle it. Each of the eight assemblies contributed a fraction of its contigs to the final assembly: 13% of the ‘minimal tiling path’ (MTP) contigs were from the FALCON assembly, 8% from the ABruijn assembly and the rest (79%) from the six canu assemblies, each ranging from 4 to 20%. Genome-wide analysis of tandem duplicated genes and their contribution to stress resistance in pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan). To explore whether the inversion is associated with Striga resistance, the map positions of previously identified QTLs for this trait (Ouédraogo et al., 2001, 2002; Boukar et al., 2004) were compared with the position of the inversion.

As noted elsewhere, 46 Mb of assembled sequences were not anchored. doi: 10.1111/nph.14702. To validate the inversion, the sequence assembly of the reference genome was compared with that of a cowpea accession typical of California breeding lines via MUMmer (Kurtz et al., 2004), using a minimum exact match of 100 bp and a minimum alignment length of 1 kb. The maximum structural variation size to be called by BreakDancer was set to 70 kb. Steiner, K. G. (1982).
