This study was conducted to determine the genetic control of resistance to loose smut caused by Ustilago tritici race T33 in two durum recombinant inbred line populations (DT662 × D93213 and Sceptre × P9162-BJ08*B) and to identify molecular markers linked to the resistance. Resistance in both populations was controlled by single genes. Two SSR markers were linked with loose smut resistance in the Sceptre × P9162-BJ08*B population. In DT662 × D93213, two AFLP, two wheat SSRs and one SCAR markers… CONTINUE READING
