  • Pea Genes database has a new url

    With Mike Ambrose's retirement there have been changes and I could not find the gene database. Luckily Keen101 from the Homegrown Goodness forum has found its new location. Thank you.

    Here it is: http://data.jic.ac.uk/pgene/

    Brilliant, thanks for sharing the link, and thank you Keen101 for posting it too.

    I think I've almost forgotten how to use the database, I'll have to get back in the swing of it!

      And you will I doubt you have forgotten the basics anyway..

    I hope I haven't, though I'm feeling decidedly rusty!
    When I went to the database and read linkage group, I thought of Silverleaf, she was so helpful and I loved and her posts. A shame she's not here anymore.

      She may well pop by. Have been in contact recently. She is now fortunately getting to the south side of some health issues. I hope she will say Hi soon.

    I'm very sorry to hear this, please, next time you chat, send her my very best for a continued and speedy recovery.
    That would be lovely, I do hope she will when she is ready

      I'm so sorry I've been away so long, but hopefully I can grow a few more peas this year. I've missed you all!

        And we have missed you here. Welcome back Silverleaf.

      Good morning, Silverleaf.
      I’m more recently on GFSS but have valued its discussions enormously and have come across your breeding work and knowledge frequently. I’m so pleased you’re feeling better and looking forward to growing some peas again. I look forward to hearing about it.
      Have you got any particular peas in mind yet?

        Hi Jang, lovely to meet you!

        I’m literally sorting out peas just now, I’d forgotten how much breeding work I’ve done... I’ll be growing out some F4s and F3s which are part of my rainbow pea project. Hopefully we’ll see violet, magenta, green, cerise and crimson flowers out of those.

        I have Golden Sweet x Purple Podded F4s - some were from red snap pods (yay) but there are some purples and semi purples which might throw reds and semi reds.

        Also Golden Sweet x Sugar Ann F4s will hopefully give me some yellow snaps.

        And I’ll pop in a bunch of interesting flower colours for crosses so I can combine some genes to get colours I know exist but haven’t seen yet. Pale lilac, light mauve, dark pink, antique rose / salmon, light rose, and pale rose purple.

        Might also do Golden Sweet x Sugar Magnolia for a red snap, because why not?

          Sorry, I missed your post until now. Yes, rather hooked on the range of possibilities.

          Kind of you to offer other possible colours and difficult to resist! Do you have any particular suggestions for an interesting colour or two to introduce into the gene mix? I'm growing a couple of different salmon-flowered varieties this next season and have Beacon, Scholar and Elisabeth to grow on and experiment with. But any suggestions would be eagerly received!

          I’ll have a look through my stash tomorrow, but off the top of my head I probably have:
          Nightmist - green flowers (gf)
          Haka - violet flowers (ar)
          Unity - crimson flowers (cr)
          Argent Adept - central part of standard darker (ceo)

          PM me your address and I’ll see what I can do.

          Thank you. That's amazingly great!
          PM on its way.

        Oh and I’ll have another try at hybridising Pisum fulvum with P. sativum, if I feel brave.

          Good luck with that cross. The fulvum flower colours are just too gorgeous.

          It’s going to be a tricky one I think, but I reckon it just needs me to keep trying. The two genes that combine to create the ochre flower colour in fulvum separately make yellow and salmon, so we’ll probably see those too, which I’m excited about.

          Silverleaf, this might interest you.

          Yeah, from what a few have told me Pisum fulvum are very hard to cross with Pisum sativum (at least maintaining fertility). Pisum Elatius and Pisum humile are much closer related, and while there still may be some variable fertility issues possibly they both should still be more easily crossed than fulvum. From what i'm told Pisum humile is the closest relative. It seems from this tree Pisum elatius is both close and far, which i find interesting.
