[…] sed to map the gene Pi-kh, which confers resistance to blast races in the Himalayan region of Northeast India []. Pinheiro et al. [] developed the cultivar Cica-8 by crossing the susceptible cultivar Metica-1 to the resistant cultivar Cica-8, and they found that one microsatellite marker, RM7102, was closely linked to the resistant allele. Yang et al. [], while working on identifying and mapping t […]
