Quantitative Trait Loci Linked to Downy Mildew Resistance

VitisGen2 researchers Konstantin Divilov, Paola Barba, Lance Cadle-Davidson, and Bruce Reisch found multiple quantitative trait loci associated with downy mildew sporulation and hypersensitive response in hybrid grape families using a single phenotype model. Read full article here
