Construction of a high-resolution genetic map and YAC-contigs in the tomato Tm-2a region


With the ultimate goal of cloning the Tobacco Mosaic Virus (TMV) resistance gene Tm-2a from tomato by means of positional cloning, a high-resolution map of a 4.3-cM region surrounding the Tm-2a gene has been constructed. In total, 13 RFLP and RAPD markers were mapped in close proximity to Tm-2a using 2112 individuals from an intraspecific Lycopersicon… (More)
