BACKGROUND Over recent years, a growing effort has been made to develop microsatellite markers for the genomic analysis of the common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) to broaden the knowledge of the molecular genetic basis of this species. The availability of large sets of expressed sequence tags (ESTs) in public databases has given rise to an expedient approach(More)
The decrease in the per capita consumption of beans has been partially attributed to their lengthy cooking time and the aggregated capital costs of their preparation. The aim of this study was to map microsatellite (SSR) markers linked to quantitative trait loci (QTLs) that govern the cooking time of common beans. An F2 generation consisting of 140 families(More)
Molecular linkage maps representing the rice genome have been an important tool for breeding programs because they allow the elucidation of polygenic traits and are an efficient tool for monitoring wild introgressions in interspecific crosses. Common markers among rice genetic maps are important in defining the homology of chromosomes and the synteny(More)
