In the present study,the mutagens Ethyl methanesulfonate (EMS) and Sodium azide (SA) succeeded in inducing the chromosomal aberrations/anomalies in variety II-EC-178313 and 2I-EC-38825 of winged bean (Psophocarpus tetragonolobus (L.) DC.). The mitotic metaphases and anaphases were scored for determining the frequency of chromosomal aberrations/anomalies. Different types of aberrations such as stickiness, mis-orientation, precocious movement, laggards and bridges could be scored in case of root
