Two breeding lines from the NDSU dry bean breeding program have been recently identified as potential sources of resistance to white mold. A molecular approach will be used to compare these new sources with other genes and genomic regions previously reported in order to determine if they contain new and unique resistance or if the resistance can be traced back to sources of resistance previously known. The most recent and comprehensive list of markers has been published by Soule et al., 2011.
