DNA Markers for Resistance to Fungal Diseases in Cotton

Date Issued:2000-08-16


Limited genetic variation in cotton has presented a significant challenge for the isolation of DNA markers linked with valuable traits such as resistance to Verticillium wilt and Fusarium wilt. Nevertheless, effective new techniques are now yielding DNA markers that can be used by cotton breeders to select for disease-resistant varieties in the absence of the pathogens.
