Abstract: The Yd2 gene in barley provides protection against barley yellow dwarf luteovirus (BYDV), the most economically devastating virus of cereals worldwide. Because resistance assays to identify Yd2-containing individuals from breeding populations are often difficult, we have developed a closely linked, codominant PCR-based marker for Yd2 using AFLP marker technology. The marker, designated YLM, can be amplified from barley genomic DNA prepared using a rapid and simple extraction procedure and, in a survey of more than 100 barley genotypes, was found to be polymorphic between most Yd2 and non-Yd2 lines. The YLM therefore shows excellent potential as a tool for selecting Yd2-carrying segregants in barley breeding programmes.
