Interpretive Summary: Fusarium root rot (FRR), caused by Fusarium solani f. sp. phaseoli (syn.F. phaseoli T. Aoki & O’Donnell, F. cuneirostrum O’Donnell & T. Aoki), is considered as one of the most economically important and widespread fungal diseases of common bean (1). Progress in breeding for FRR resistance has been hampered by the low efficiency of phenotypic selection. Hence, the development of fast and efficient screening methods and marker-assisted breeding tools for FFR resistance will help in transferring higher levels of resistance and shorten the time for commercial cultivar development. The objectives were to determine utility of greenhouse screening method for identification of QTL conditioning resistance to FRR in a snap bean recombinant inbred line (RIL) population using traits such as disease severity index and root and foliar biomass (dry weight), and to integrate the genomic regions associated to resistance onto the reference genome of common bean.
