Is the USDA core collection of common bean representative of genetic diversity of the species, as assessed by SNP diversity?

Paul Gepts, Saarah Kuzay & Paige Hamilton
Core collections are envisioned to be a representative subset of larger germplasm collections. They were introduced to facilitate the characterization and use of these germplasm collections. The common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) core collection of the USDA Western Regional Plant Introduction Station was one of the first ones to be established in the early 1990s. Here, we evaluate the representativity of this common bean collection in light of the availability of a SNP platform and new...
