Seed coat color and anthocyanidin coloration are important traits for variety identification and marker assisted selection in mungbean. Based on the phenotypes of progenies from different combinations, we analyzed the inheritance of the traits above. The results showed that seed coat color was controlled by mono-gene, and green was dominant to yellow, while black was dominant to green. The seed luster had a complicated genetic model, and there was no relationship between seed coat color and luster. The inheritance of anthocyanidin coloration on different parts of plant was also agreeable to mono-gene. However, the relationships among of anthocyanidin coloration among different parts of plant were not similar. The genes controlling anthocyanidin coloration in seedlings and in leaf base might be tightly linked together or be the same, while the gene controlling anthocyanidin coloration in keel was not linked with other genes.

Key words: Mungbean, Inheritance, Seed coat color and luster, Anthocyanidin coloration
