We regret we acknowledged the seed from the USDA and IITA, and it actually came from the USDA and ILRI.

Materials and methods

Plant material and DNA extraction

A collection of seed (Online Resource 1) was obtained from the USDA National Plant Germplasm System ( and the ILRI Germplasm Collection ( Ninety-one geographically diverse accessions were germinated in a mixture of 1/3 vermiculite: 2/3 Levington’s F2 + S compost in a greenhouse at 23 °C and a 16-h photoperiod. Plants were placed on flood benches which were flooded twice a day for 15 min. Seven and four accessions represented subsp. bengalensis and subsp. uncinatus, respectively, with the remaining 80 representing the main cultivated group, subsp. purpureus. Accessions mentioned in the text have six digits if they came from the USDA and five digits if they were sourced from ILRI.



This study was funded by the University of Southampton for OR to carry out an undergraduate project in the laboratory of MAC. We are grateful to the genebanks at the USDA and ILRI for their assistance in providing the seed material and to the Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, for carrying out the sequencing and genotyping.
