Genetics of resistance toAmphorophora rubi (Kalt.) in the raspberry

I. the Gene A1 from Baumforth A

  • Published:
Journal of Genetics Aims and scope Submit manuscript


The resistance of Baumforth A toAmphorophora rubi (Kalt.), is shown to be controlled by a single dominant gene,A 1, which is linked with the normal allele of a semi-lethal gene,fr, designated Frilly. The cross-over value of these two loci is approximately 3·3%. The geneA 1 confers high resistance both to the seedling and to the mature plant.
