Data from: Domestication genomics of the open-pollinated scarlet runner bean (Phaseolus coccineus L.)

Azalea Guerra-García, Marco Suárez-Atilano, Alicia Mastretta-Yanes, Alfonso Delgado-Salinas & Daniel Piñero
The runner bean is a legume species from Mesoamerica closely related to common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris). It is a perennial species, but it is usually cultivated in small-scale agriculture as an annual crop for its dry seeds and edible immature pods. Unlike the common bean, P. coccineus has received little attention from a genetic standpoint. In this work we aim to (1) provide information about the domestication history and domestication events of P. coccineus; (2)...

Data from: Finding a needle in a haystack: distinguishing Mexican maize landraces using a small number of SNPs

Jose Luis Caldu-Primo, Alicia Mastretta-Yanes, Ana Wegier & Daniel Piñero
In Mexico's territory, the center of origin and domestication of maize (Zea mays), there is a large phenotypic diversity of this crop. This diversity has been classified into “landraces.” Previous studies have reported that genomic variation in Mexican maize is better explained by environmental factors, particularly those related with altitude, than by landrace. Still, landraces are extensively used by agronomists, who recognize them as stable and discriminatory categories for the classification of samples. In order...
