Abstract Plant domestication has strongly modified crop morphology and development. Nevertheless, many crops continue to display some atavistic characteristics that were advantageous to their wild ancestors, such as pod dehiscence (PD). Here, we provide the first comprehensive assessment of the inheritance of PD in a domesticated grain legume, common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris). We compared three methods to evaluate the PD phenotype and identified multiple, unlinked genetic regions controlling PD using a biparental population and two...
