A genetic map provides a foundation on which genomic research can be built, linking together otherwise disconnected studies and forming the basis on which to build physical and cytogenetic maps and conduct whole genome sequencing. As part of a wide collaborative effort, we developed a dense genetic map of the narrow-leafed lupin (Lupinus angustifolius L.) comprising 1073 molecular markers, 6 domestication trait loci and an Anthracnose resistance locus distributed across 20 major linkage groups. This map will be used to investigate the extent of genome conservation between narrow-leafed lupin and the model legume species, Medicago truncatula and Lotus japonicus. We discuss the potential applications of this reference map in lupin genetic and genomic research.
