...and the evolution of its ancestors (Varshney et al. 2012). A number of marker systems including restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs), amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs), random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD), single feature polymorphism (SFP) and simple sequence repeats (SSRs) have been developed and utilized to assess genetic diversity (Saxena et al. 2010), construct genetic maps (Bohra etal. 2011) and quantitative trait loci (OTL) analysis (Gnanesh et al. 2011; Bohra et al. 2012) in pigeonpea. Recently single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been identified in a large number of pigeonpea lines especially dueto the next generation sequencing (NGS) based re-sequencing of diverse germplasm (the reference set of pigeonpea)(Varshney et al. 2017). Comprehensive application of genomics for crop improvement begins with the availability of large amount of markers…
