Plants are attacked by pathogens representing diverse taxonomic groups, such that genes providing multiple disease resistance (MDR) are expected to be under positive selection pressure. To address the hypothesis that naturally occurring allelic variation conditions MDR, we extended the framework of structured association mapping to allow for the analysis of(More)
Lima bean is affected by severe downy mildew epidemics caused by the oomycete Phytophthora phaseoli. There are six documented races of P. phaseoli (A to F). Race F is currently predominant in the mid-Atlantic region, creating the need for resistant lima bean cultivars with desirable agronomic characteristics. In order to develop markers for detecting race F(More)
