SOLanaceae Function Map for Pathogen Resistance

The 'SOLanaceae Function Map for Pathogen Resistance' is a representation of published literature in the form of a genetic map. It does not represent an experimental genetic map. The 'SOLanaceae Function Map for Pathogen Resistance' integrates current knowledge on the position of qualitative (R genes) and quantitative resistance factors (QRL = quantitative resistance loci) in the potato/tomato/pepper/tobacco genomes. The map also compiles current knowledge on genomic positions of candidate genes having putative functions in pathogen recognition, defence signaling and defence responses.
The map backbone is based on anchor RFLP loci experimentally mapped in the potato mapping populations F1840 and/or BC916.2. The positions of resistance factors and DNA marker loci mapped in different genetic backgrounds of potato, tomato, pepper and tobacco were deduced from the literature and are arbitrary, therefore. Their positions were estimated based on most closely linked anchor markers. Anchor markers are: Potato GP*** and CP*** markers and tomato TG*** and CT*** markers of known position on the potato/tomato molecular maps, which were used in mapping experiments carried out in different genetic materials and in different laboratories.
The 'SOLanaceae Function Map for Pathogen Resistance' has been compiled by Christiane Gebhardt (MPI for Plant Breeding Research, Köln, Germany, ) to the best of knowledge, but is not error free. Feedback from the SOL community is necessary and welcomed to correct mistakes and to update the map with new positional information.
