Screening apples for OPD20/600 using sequence-specific primers


Apple scab, caused by Venturia inaequalis (Cke.) Wint., is the most serious disease of apple trees in many areas of the world. Resistance to V. inaequalis, derived from the small-fruited species Malus floribunda 821, is determined by a major dominant gene, Vf. Using random decamer primers, we identified a RAPD marker, OPD20/600, which is linked to the Vf… (More)
