The powdery mildew resistant genes, Pm36, Pm41, Pm51, andMlIW170, and the stripe rust resistant gene Yr26 were identified by comparative genomics analysis, and linkage markers were also designed using the collinear regions in wheat, rice, Brachypodium, and sorghum (ZHANG et al.
Four other QTL (qBLSB-2c, qBLSB-6a, qBLSB-6b, and qBLSB10) with genetic distances away from the closest linkage markers of 0.01 to 10.00 cM were found in both environments.
