Disease Resistance to Multiple Fungal and Oomycete Pathogens Evaluated Using a Recombinant Inbred Line Population in Pepper.


PMID 28762287

Abstract

Incorporating disease resistance into cultivars is a primary focus of modern breeding programs. Resistance to pathogens is often introgressed from landrace or wild individuals with poor fruit quality into commercial-quality cultivars. Sites of multiple disease resistance (MDR) are regions or "hot spots" of the genome with closely linked genes for resistance to different pathogens that could enable rapid incorporation of resistance. An F
