The Vf resistance gene has been widely used in apple breeding programmes to control Venturia inaequalis, the causal agent of scab, the major apple disease. Since the appearance of new strains that are able to overcome this major gene, research in Europe has been focused on durable resistance. The objective of one task of the European DARE project was to find cultivars which show a broad spectrum of resistance to the different scab races. This collaborative work involved 6 partners who tested 36…

Inheritance studies of apple scab resistance and identification of Rvi14, a new major gene that acts together with other broad-spectrum QTL.
TLDR
The aim of this study was to determine the genetic basis of quantitative resistance of the apple cultivar 'Dülmener Rosenapfel', known to be scab resistant under different environmental conditions.
Apple Breeding – From the Origin to Genetic Engineering
Apple is the most important temperate fruit crop and ranks fourth in world production of fruits after citrus, grapes and bananas. Although more than 10,000 cultivars are documented, only a few dozen
Fine mapping of the gene Rvi18 (V25) for broad-spectrum resistance to apple scab, and development of a linked SSR marker suitable for marker-assisted breeding
TLDR
The mapping of the new apple scab resistance gene Rvi18 (V25) was reported from the selection 1980-015-025 of the apple breeding program at Wageningen University and Research Centre, The Netherlands, facilitating the directed pyramiding of resistance genes through marker assisted breeding.
Use of genetic resources and partial resistances for apple breeding.
TLDR
The focus at Agroscope Changins-Wadenswil (ACW) is put on high fruit quality combined with low susceptibility to scab, fire blight, and powdery mildew with a focus on heritage varieties.
Variability of the Pathogenicity of Venturia inaequalis in Europe
TLDR
The results provided information on the virulence of the fungus in Europe, with special attention to virulence to the Vf gene, and the most virulent strains originated from Northwest Europe.
Effects of a cultivar mixture on scab control in apple orchards.
TLDR
The characteristics of the Venturia inaequalis/Malus × domestica pathosystem and the results obtained in this experiment suggest a moderate but not negligible ability of cultivar mixtures for reducing epidemics of the disease.
Differential selection pressures exerted by host resistance quantitative trait loci on a pathogen population: a case study in an apple × Venturia inaequalis pathosystem.
TLDR
Investigation of selection pressures exerted by apple genotypes harbouring various resistance quantitative trait loci on a mixed inoculum of the scab disease agent, Venturia inaequalis, suggests that the management of resistant cultivars should be different according to the spectrum of action of their resistance factors.
European pome fruit genetic resources evaluated for disease resistance
TLDR
This work focuses on pome fruit genetic resources evaluated phenotypically and genotypically for susceptibility to apple scab, powdery mildew, fire blight, pear rust and storage diseases.
Revision of the nomenclature of the differential host-pathogen interactions of Venturia inaequalis and Malus.
TLDR
A set of universally available, differentially resistant hosts is described, which will be followed by a set of defined pathogen races at a later stage.

A new race of Venturia inaequalis virulent to apples with resistance due to the Vf gene
TLDR
The gene Vf from Malus floribunda 821 for resistance to scab (Venturia inaequalis) has been used successfully for 50 years in apple breeding programs, but the results indicate the urgency of diversifing the sources of resistance to V. inae Qualis in new breeding strategies.
Genetics of Host-Pathogen Relationships Between Venturia inaequalis Races 6 and 7 and Malus Species.
TLDR
ThePathogenicity of a progeny originating from a cross between V. inaequalis strains 1066 and 301, characterized in vitro on leaf disks of differential genotypes, revealed two independent avirulence genes involved in the pathogenicity toward the Vg and Vf genes, respectively.
An overview of the position and robustness of scab resistance QTLs and major genes by aligning of genetic maps in five apple progenies
TLDR
Five mapping populations have been studied for partial scab resistance against several races of Venturia inaequalis to identify QTLs (quantitative traits loci) with broad spectrum of resistance towards a wide range of strains of the fungus.
Variability of the Pathogenicity of Venturia inaequalis in Europe
TLDR
The results provided information on the virulence of the fungus in Europe, with special attention to virulence to the Vf gene, and the most virulent strains originated from Northwest Europe.
A microscopic study of the different classes of symptoms coded by the Vf gene in apple for resistance to scab (Venturia inaequalis)
TLDR
The different symptoms of resistance coded by the VF gene were studied on glasshouse-grown apple seedlings after inoculation with a conidial suspension of Venturia inaequalis to define three different classes of symptoms.
Quantitative genetics in an apple breeding strategy
TLDR
Open-pollinated seed of 500 genotypes of commercial cultivars, breeding selections and wild species of apples was collected from overseas mixed-clone repositories to generate the first generation of the new ‘Apple Breeding Population’.
Prima’ was resistant to most of the inocula. It was only susceptible to the two strains of race 6 (strains 302 and EU-D-42), to the strain EU-NL-24 and to the local PRI isolate inoculated
