Description

Pearl millet is a staple food for more than 90 million farmers in arid and semi-arid regions of sub-Saharan Africa, India and South Asia. ICRISAT highlight the substantial enrichment for wax biosynthesis genes, which may contribute to heat and drought tolerance in this crop. ICRISAT resequenced and analyzed 994 pearl millet lines, enabling insights into population structure, genetic diversity and domestication. We use these resequencing data to establish marker trait associations for genomic selection, to define heterotic pools, and to predict hybrid performance.
