Abstract:
MLO genes have been shown to provide resistance to powdery mildew pathogens in many plant speces. Powdery mildew has not been well studied in red raspberries and is becoming more of a problem. MLO genes were sequenced in 95 red raspberry varieties from the USDA-ARS National Clonal Germplasm Repository. Two candidate genes thought to provide resistance were identified. In these genes, 22 DNA sequence variations were observed that could indicate the presence of resisistance. Additional work is needed to determine if any of the genes provide resistance.
