To help plant breeders develop varieties with improved characteristics for production in Australia, the GRDC is investing in two genome sequencing projects in pulse crops... Australia is a major producer of narrowleaf lupins, so the GRDC has commissioned this sequencing project, which will be among the first major plant genome sequencing projects in Australia... The second project relates to involvement in the International Chickpea Genome Sequencing Initiative (ICGSI). This initiative is a collaboration between the major chickpea-producing countries, including India, through project leader the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), Canada, Spain and the US. Kabuli chickpeas will be the focus of the ICGSI's sequencing effort...
