ICRISAT developed a composite collection of 1000 accessions, which consists of 146 mini core subset accessions (Upadhyaya et al. 2006), another 146 comparator mini core accessions, 236 of the 1290 core collection accessions (Reddy et al. 2005), 389 traitbased accessions (resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses and those with superior morpho-agronomic traits), 20 advanced lines/cultivars, and 63 accessions from seven wild Cajanus species. Geographically, it consists of 73% accessions from Asia, 13% from Africa, 5% from Caribbean, 3% each from America’s and Oceania, and remaining 3% from other regions. This composite collection has been molecularly profiled using 20 SSRs in high throughput assay (ABI3700).
