Abstract

The genetic control of adult plant resistance to Stagonospora nodorum blotch (SNB) is complex, consisting of genes with minor effects interacting in an additive manner. Earlier studies detected quantitative trait loci (QTL) for flag leaf resistance in successive years on chromosomes 1B, 2A, 2D, and 5B using SSR- and DArT-based genetic maps of progeny from the crosses EGA Blanco/Millewa, 6HRWSN125/WAWHT2074, and P92201D5/P91193D1. Similarly, QTL for glume resistance detected in successive years and multiple environments were identified on chromosomes 2D and 4B from genetic maps of P92201D5/P91193D1 and 6HRWSN125/WAWHT2074, respectively. The SSR- and DArT-based genetic maps had an average distance of 6.5, 7.8, and 9.7 cM between marker loci for populations EGA/Millewa, P92201D5/P91193D1, and 6HRWSN125/WAWHT2074, respectively. This study used single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers from the iSelect Infinium 90K genotyping array to fine-map genomic regions harbouring QTL for flag leaf and glume SNB resistance, reducing the average distance between markers to 2.9, 3.3, and 3.4 cM for populations P92201D5/P91193D1, EGA/Millewa, and 6HRWSN125/WAWHT2074, respectively. Increasing the marker density of the genetic maps with SNPs did not identify any new QTL for SNB resistance but discriminated previously identified co-located QTL into separate but closely linked QTL.
