Towards improvement of marker assisted selection of apple scab resistant cultivars: Venturia inaequalis virulence surveys and standardization of molecular marker alleles associated with resistance genes


Molecular breeding for pathogen resistance faces two major problems that delay its widespread adoption, resistance breakdown and difficulties in unambiguously identifying the alleles of the markers associated with specific resistance genes. Since the breakdown of the Rvi6 (Vf) gene in the Northern part of Europe breeders have intensified the search for new… (More)
