Lupinus (lupin, lupine)
Lupinus, commonly known as lupin, lupine, or regionally bluebonnet etc., is a genus of flowering plants in the legume family Fabaceae. The genus includes over 199 species, with centers of diversity in North and South America. Smaller centers occur in North Africa and the Mediterranean. They are widely cultivated, both as a food source and as ornamental plants, although in the Nordic countries and New Zealand's South Island, introduced lupins are viewed as a severe environmental threat.

Lupinus albus: White lupin
White lupin (Lupinus albus) has been used as a model to study the development of dense root hairs, for phosphorous uptake, in phosphorous-deficient soils. See O'Rourke et al., 2013 (DOI:10.1104/pp.112.209254).

(Northern United States)
Lupinus albus strain LAGI01 was used in a study of response to low-phosphorous stress, in O'Rourke et al., 2013 (DOI:10.1104/pp.112.209254). The strain identifier 'LAGI01' is informal, being an abbreviation of 'Lupinus albus Gene Index', and does not uniquely identify a particular accession.

(Mediterranean region, center of origin believed to be Greece, Western Turkey and southern Balkans)
A modern improved cultivar used as the basis of whole genome sequencing and assembly (Hufnagel et al. 2020 https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-019-14197-9)

Lupinus angustifolius: narrow-leafed lupin
Narrow-leafed lupin (Lupinus angustifolius) is an important legume crop, for its high-protein seeds and ability to tolerate sandy, relatively acidic soil, in Australia and parts of Europe. The genome has been sequenced: Hane et al., 2016 (DOI:10.1111/pbi.12615).
