The objectives of the present study were to monitor the effect of backcrossing through microsatellite markers and to compare different marker assisted selection strategies. Four populations were developed using donor parents resistant to the bean golden mosaic virus and, for all crosses, only individuals resistant to the bean golden mosaic virus were backcrossed.
