Association of AFLP and SCAR markers with common leafspot resistance in autotetraploid alfalfa (Medicago sativa)

Y. Wang, Bi, B., Yuan, Q. H., Li, X. L., and Gao, J. M., Association of AFLP and SCAR markers with common leafspot resistance in autotetraploid alfalfa (Medicago sativa), vol. 11, pp. 606-616, 2012.

To identify amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers associated with resistance or susceptibility of alfalfa to common leafspot (CLS) caused by the fungus Pseudopeziza medicaginis (Dermateaceae), bulked segregant analysis was conducted based on an F1(M × M) population of 93 plants and a BC1S population of 91 plants. Three AFLP markers, ACTCAAR206, TAGCACR185, and GGACTAS264, were found to be associated with CLS resistance or susceptibility.
