Chickpea genomics promises to illuminate our understanding of genome organization, structural variations, evolutionary and domestication-related insights and fundamental biology of legume crops. Unprecedented advancements of next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies have enabled in decoding of multiple chickpea genome sequences and generating huge genomic resources in chickpea both at functional and structural level. This review is aimed to update the current progress of chickpea genomics ranging from high density linkage map development, genome-wide association studies (GWAS), functional genomics resources for various traits, emerging role of abiotic stress responsive coding and non-coding RNAs after the completion of draft chickpea genome sequences. Additionally, the current efforts of whole genome re-sequencing (WGRS) approach of global chickpea germplasm to capture the global genetic diversity existing in the historically released varieties across the world and increasing the resolution of the previously identified candidate gene(s) of breeding importance have been discussed. Thus, the outcomes of these genomics resources will assist in genomics-assisted selection and facilitate breeding of climate-resilient chickpea cultivars for sustainable agriculture.
