Genetic mapping of polygenic scab (Venturia pirina) resistance in an interspecific pear family

Abstract

The need for chemical control of scab (Venturia pirina, V. nashicola) is the main barrier preventing sustainable pear production. As cultivars with durable resistance are not available yet commercially, the development of molecular markers for early selection is desirable to enhance the efficiency of breeding such cultivars. Interspecific pear progeny PEAR1… (More)
