We have constructed the first integrated consensus map (ICM) for rose, based on the information of four diploid populations and more than 1,000 initial markers. The single population maps are linked via 59 bridge markers, on average 8.4 per linkage group (LG). The integrated map comprises 597 markers, 206 of which are sequence-based, distributed over a(More)
Powdery mildew, caused by Podosphaera pannosa, is one of the most-severe diseases of roses grown under glass. The differentiation into physiological races and the genetic analysis of resistance in a segregating host population was investigated using single conidial isolates of the pathogen. Using ten rose genotypes, all eight isolates of the pathogen could(More)
Podosphaera pannosa, the causal agent of rose powdery mildew, hampers the production of cut roses throughout the world. A major tool to control this disease is the use of resistant plant material. Single resistance genes, like Rpp1, may be overcome within a few years by high risk pathogens like powdery mildews. Durable resistance could be achieved using(More)
The genus Rosa has a complex evolutionary history caused by several factors, often in conjunction: extensive hybridization, recent radiation, incomplete lineage sorting, and multiple events of polyploidy. We examined the applicability of AFLP markers for reconstructing (species) relationships in Rosa, using UPGMA clustering, Wagner parsimony, and Bayesian(More)
We have previously demonstrated that in the diploid rose population 97/9 resistance to the powdery mildew race 9 is controlled by a major dominant resistance gene, Rpp1. In the study reported here, we isolated several molecular markers closely linked to Rpp1 via bulked segregant analysis, with the gene being tagged in an interval of 5 cM between the two(More)
Flower color is one of the most important traits of ornamental roses. Anthocyanins are the major secondary metabolites responsible for the red and pink colors found among rose cultivars. Color varies depending on the combination of particular anthocyanins, their co-factors and their concentrations. Several genetic investigations have indicated that(More)
Polyploidy is a widespread phenomenon among higher plants and a major factor shaping the structure and evolution of plant genomes. The important ornamental chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum indicum hybrid) possesses a hexaploid genome with 54 chromosomes and was classified based on its evolutionary origin and cytological methods as an allopolyploid. However, it(More)
Interspecific hybridization is a useful tool in ornamental breeding to increase genetic variability and introduce new valuable traits into existing cultivars. The successful formation of interspecific hybrids is frequently limited by the presence of pre- and post-fertilization barriers. In the present study, we investigated the nature of hybridization(More)
The resistance of plants to pathogens relies on two lines of defense: a basal defense response and a pathogen-specific system, in which resistance (R) genes induce defense reactions after detection of pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPS). In the specific system, a so-called arms race has developed in which the emergence of new races of a pathogen(More)
The interaction of roses with the leaf spot pathogen Diplocarpon rosae (the cause of black spot on roses) is an interesting pathosystem because it involves a long-lived woody perennial, with life history traits very different from most model plants, and a hemibiotrophic pathogen with moderate levels of gene flow. Here we present data on the molecular(More)
