End Date: Aug 23, 2014
Microsatellite (=2400) loci will be mined and primers will be tested using the parentals for several available mapping populations. A set of 500 microsatellite loci will be used for linkage map development using 179 individuals mapping population from the New Jersey. The map will incorporate trait information regarding yield and quality characteristics and field fruit-rot resistance. The SSR cranberry linkage map will be enhanced with SNP markers derived from genotyping-by-sequencing.
