Interpretive Summary: Plant germplasm characterization at the molecular level is needed to fully utilize the genetic resources found in the USDA-ARS National Plant Germplasm System. This manuscript reports progress made on molecular characterization of pea genetic resources for resistance to Fusarium wilt disease, a major constraint in pea crop production in the United States.
Technical Abstract: Our objective was to identify markers linked to Fusarium wilt resistance genes for marker assisted selection. We also used recombinant inbred line populations phenotyped in the greenhouse and bulk segregant analysis to identify markers as probes for positional cloning of the resistance genes using a large-insert library.
