Here we present the genome of the pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan), a widely farmed diploid legume species. It is an important reference genome for food crop development as many crop species, such as soybean (Glycine max), chickpea (Cicer arietinum), lentil (Lens culinaris), and alfalfa (Medicago sativa), are legumes. The genetic improvement of pigeonpea has ramifications for food protection as well, as it is cultivated primarily in small-scale holdings in semi-arid tropical regions of the developing world....
