Abstract
From ancient time onward chickpea (Cicer arietinum) is most important source of nutrients in the human diet. Along with the nutritional importance it possesses many medicinal values. It is very much essential to improve the quality of chickpea, an economic important crop, hereby in this study a biochemical approach had been employed to determine taxonomic and evolutionary information of chickpea. Forty Five accession of Cicer arietinum were taken for the study of genetic variation within intragenic varieties based on their seed protein using SDS PAGE. A total of 20 and 16 distinct bands were detected for albumin and globulin protein respectively, from the obtained band pattern a binary matrix was created and subjected to combined cluster analysis of albumin and globulin protein using UPGMA method. Based on analysis of cluster, FLIP-90-160 showed distinct relation from other cultivars. Present study concluded both globulin and albumin protein…
