The objectives of this project are to identify a large number of genome wide SNPs from parental lines of A4 CMS-based pigeonpea hybrids; detect marker/haplotype associations for yield and related traits; develop mapping populations segregating for fertility restoration capacity; and identify molecular markers linked to fertility restorer (Rf) gene(s) of the A4 CMS system.
