Technical Abstract: Plant R genes are known to confer resistance to a variety of pathogens in a gene-for-gene mode. Seventy-six putative resistance gene analogs (RGAs) containing conserved domains were amplified from red raspberry Rubus idaeus “Latham” using degenerate primers based on RGAs identified in other Rosaceae species. These sequences were clustered using a variety of methods such as Cap3 and Phrap. The consensus sequences of the resulting contigs and singletons were aligned and compared in a phylogenetic context with RGAs identified from other Rosaceae species. This work is part of a larger project to map RGAs in a red raspberry population segregating for resistance to Phytophthora.
