Pisum sativum (Pea)

Abstract : The humble pea (Pisum sativum L.), which is commonly present at many family tables worldwide, is an important crop forsustainable agriculture and food security, and a famous genetic model,first starring in Mendel’s theory of inheritance.The recently released pea genome sequence is thefirst pseudo-chromosome level sequence representing the Fabeae,a taxonomic tribe characterised by large genomes. The pea genome contains a large proportion of repeatedsequences; most of which are transposable elements (TEs). Since pea’s divergence from other tribes, the pea genomehas been subject to higher rates of nucleotide mutations and gene duplications and deletions than other sequencedlegume genomes. The high abundance of LTR/Gypsy OgreTEs likely influenced the pea genome’s rapid evolution.Genome resequencing ofPisumaccessions further highlighted translocation and transposition events within the genus
