- Identification of QTLs for powdery mildew and scald resistance in barley
- Published at:Not Found
A population of 103 recombinant inbred lines (RILs, F9-derived lines) developed from the tworow spring barley cross L94×‘Vada’ was evaluated under field conditions for resistance against powdery mildew (Blumeria graminis f.sp. hordei) and scald (Rhynchosporium secalis). Apart from the major resistance gene mlo on chromosome 4 (4H), three QTLs (Rbgq1, Rbgq2 and Rbgq3) for resistance against powdery mildew were detected on chromosomes 2 (2H), 3 (3H), and 7 (5H), respectively. Rbgq1 and Rbgq2 have not been reported before, and did not map to a chromosome region where a major gene for powdery mildew had been reported. Four QTLs (Rrsq1, Rrsq2, Rrsq3 and Rrsq4) for resistance against scald were detected on chromosomes 3 (3H), 4 (4H) and 6 (6H). All four mapped to places where QTLs for scald resistance had been reported before in different populations.
