Medicago truncatula, the barrelclover, strong-spined medick, barrel medic, or barrel medick, is a small annual legume native to the Mediterranean region that is used in genomic research. It is a low-growing, clover-like plant 10–60 cm tall with trifoliate leaves. Each leaflet is rounded, 1–2 cm long, often with a dark spot in the center. The flowers are yellow, produced singly or in a small inflorescence of two to five together; the fruit is a small, spiny pod. It is also an important forage crop species in Australia.

  • Medicago truncatula, the barrelclover, strong-spined medick, barrel medic, or barrel medick, is a small annual legume native to the Mediterranean region that is used in genomic research. It is a low-growing, clover-like plant 10–60 cm tall with trifoliate leaves. Each leaflet is rounded, 1–2 cm long, often with a dark spot in the center. The flowers are yellow, produced singly or in a small inflorescence of two to five together; the fruit is a small, spiny pod. This species is studied as a model organism for legume biology because it has a small diploid genome, is self-fertile, has a rapid generation time and prolific seed production, is amenable to genetic transformation, and its genome has been sequenced. It forms symbioses with nitrogen-fixing rhizobia (Sinorhizobium meliloti and Sinorhizobium medicae) and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi including Rhizophagus irregularis (previously known as Glomus intraradices). The model plant Arabidopsis thaliana does not form either symbiosis, making M. truncatula an important tool for studying these processes. It is also an important forage crop species in Australia.

  • Medicago truncatulaFichier:Medicago truncatula A17 plant.JPG Luzerne tronquée Nom binominal Medicago truncatulaGaertn., 1791 Classification phylogénétique Medicago truncatula, plus communément appelée luzerne tronquée, est une plante herbacée de la famille des Fabaceae. Elle fait partie des plantes annuelles du genre Medicago. Elle a été identifiée comme la plante modèle des Fabaceae puisque ces dernières présentent la capacité de former des nodosités racinaires capables de fixer l'azote atmosphérique. Cette espèce est diploïde (2n = 16) et présente une grande synténie avec certaines espèces très cultivées comme le pois ou la luzerne. Son génome (sept fois plus petit que celui du pois) permet d'accéder rapidement aux séquences génomiques et de produire des mutants qui servent notamment pour l'identification du rôle fonctionnel des gènes. Tout ceci permet, également, de constituer rapidement des cartes génétiques et physiques qui sont un atout majeur dans la recherche génétique. Ces cartes permettent, entre autres, d'évaluer la synténie existant entre les espèces de Légumineuses afin d'identifier certains gènes chez ces autres espèces. (fr)
