    Abstract
    Mutation is prerequisite for creating new variation in crop plants. This variation forms the basis for any crop improvement program. In this study, a population of 3774 mungbean M 1 mutant plants were generated using 0.7% of ethyl methane sulfonate. For TILLING by sequencing, 768 M 2 families were sequenced for three different candidate genes responsible for altering plant architecture in mungbean. In total, five exon residing mutations were identified, among them three mutations each in GIGANTEA , RAMOSUS and TERMINAL FLOWER1 were found to be deleterious and altering the protein...
