(2005): QTL analysis of resistance to Fusarium head blight in wheat using a ‘Wangshuibai’-derived population
Plant Breeding, 124, 329-333; ISSN 0179-9541 FullText FullText_BOKU

Fusarium head blight (FHB) is a devastating disease that reduces the yield, quality and economic value of wheat. For quantitative trait loci (QTL) analysis of resistance to FHB, F-3 plants and F-3:5 lines, derived from a 'Wangshuibai' (resistant)/'Seri82' (susceptible) cross, were spray inoculated during 2001 and 2002, respectively. Artificial inoculation was carried out under field conditions. Of 420 markers, 258 amplified fragment length polymorphism and 39 simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers were mapped and yielded 44 linkage groups covering a total genetic distance of 2554 cM. QTL analysis was based on the constructed linkage map and area under the disease progress curve. The analyses revealed a QTL in the map interval Xgwm533-Xs18/m12 on chromosome 3BS accounting for up to 17% of the phenotypic variation. In addition, a QTL was detected in the map interval Xgwm539-Xs15/m24 on chromosome 2DL explaining up to 11% of the phenotypic variation. The QTL alleles originated from 'Wangshuibai' and were tagged with SSR markers. Using these SSR markers would facilitate marker-assisted selection to improve FHB resistance in wheat.
