Mapping genes for net form of net blotch and stripe rust in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)

Cakir, M., Galwey, N., Poulsen, D., Platz, G., Ablett, G., Wellings, C. and Vivar, H. (2001) Mapping genes for net form of net blotch and stripe rust in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.). In: 10th Australian Barley Technical Symposium, 16 - 20 September 2001, Canberra, Australia


A dihaploid mapping population comprising 65 lines was developed between barley parent varieties Tallon and Kaputar and used to construct a genetic linkage map. This map, comprising 195 amplified fragment length polymorphism and 38 simple sequence repeat markers, was used to identify markers linked to the net form of net blotch (Pyrenophora teres f.sp. teres) and to stripe rust (Puccinia striiformis f.sp. hordei) in barley. The population was screened with five pathotypes of net blotch at the seedling stage in the glasshouse and subjected to a natural inoculation in Hermitage, Queensland. Stripe rust screening was conducted at the adult plant stage in Toluca, Mexico. Analyses of the markers were performed using Mapmanager and Qgene software. One region on chromosome 6H was highly significantly associated with resistance to the net blotch (R2 = 79%). This association was consistent for all pathotypes studied. One region on chromosome 5H was found to be highly significantly associated with resistance to stripe rust (R2= 65%). There are a number of very closely linked markers showing strong associations in these regions, and these markers present an opportunity for marker assisted selection of these traits in barley breeding programs.
