Technical Abstract: For bean rust, as with most host/hypervariable pathogen interactions, co-evolution of numerous resistance genes and pathotypes has transpired. Nine named and four undefined rust resistance genes have been tagged with RAPD or SCAR markers. The markers can be used for indirect selection and to facilitate development of resistance gene pyramids. A comprehensive linkage map of the rust resistance genes can now be used to direct allelism tests for characterization and naming of new rust resistance genes.
