Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Anthracnose is one of the most significant diseases of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) in temperate and subtropical bean production areas of the world. This disease is caused by Colletotrichum lindemuthianum, known for its extensive virulence diversity. Dozens of races of this pathogen have been characterized and reported in the literature. Having genes with broad spectrum resistance to the races of C. lindemuthianum is a very important step for the development of common bean cultivars with effective resistance to this highly variable pathogen. The Andean dry bean Amendoim Cavalo (AC) has broad resistance to C. lindemuthianum (Nanani et al. 2014). We report here a study of the inheritance of anthracnose resistance in AC. In addition we used bulk segregant analysis and of a large set of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) DNA markers to establish the location of the anthracnose resistance gene of AC in the linkage group of common bean.
