Association Genetics in Medicago

These researchers are using whole-genome resequence data collected from ~300 individuals of the model legume Medicago truncatula to identify the genetic basis of ecologically and economically important traits. In addition, whole-genome sequence data from other species of Medicago as well as the plant’s mutualist (Sinorhizobia) are being analyzed to characterize the demographic and selective history of these species.
