The French Collection of Medicago truncatula
The Genetic Resources and Mediterranean Medicago Plant Breeding Laboratory INRA-Montpellier has led several surveys in order to collect natural diversity of the species complex : Medicago truncatula,Medicago littoralis and Medicago tornata. It has widened its collection by exchanging materials with international collections and possesses a huge collection originating from all the Mediterranean Basin. The feature of this collection is to offer a large level of polymorphism from the natural diversity. The collection is currently being screened for phenological traits and molecular markers. Different nested core collections* of well characterized inbred lines are available to the international scientific community. Numerous data are also available upon request. * Ronfort et al 2006, BMC Plant Biology, http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2229/6/28.
