markers for genes of interest allow breeders to make selections when otherwise the gene for the trait may have been masked by heterozygosity. Association mapping is a relatively recent technology development, which identifies quantitative trait loci (QTLs

nearest SSR marker, UDP98-025 at 10 cM, had a greater genetic distance to resistance loci, and it may be of little use. Additional markers saturating the region around PkMi are necessary for marker-assisted selection (MAS). Many sources of nematode
