Lack of tightly linked markers has so far prevented widespread use of Lr67 in breeding programmes. Exhaustive screening of available SSR markers and 9,000 gene-associated SNPs using bulk segregant analysis yielded several linked markers but none close enough to the gene for routine breeding applications. In contrast, genotyping by sequencing identified several better-linked SNP-based markers that were converted into single-marker KASPar assays.

High frequency (43 %, 29/66) of the Lr67-associated SNP allele in landraces from the Indian subcontinent suggests the origin of Lr67 from this region. While marker csSNP856 is not diagnostic for the presence of Lr67, it represents a significant step towards assisting the transfer of this adult plant resistance gene into elite germplasm via marker-assisted breeding.Collection: CIMMYT Staff Publications Collection
