Summary: Breeding for resistant cultivars is the only way to prevent high yield loss in barley caused by the soil-borne barley mild mosaic virus (BaMMV) complex. We have characterized the BaMMV resistance of barley cv. Chikurin Ibaraki 1. Doubled haploid lines were obtained from the F1 between the susceptible six-rowed winter barley cultivar, Plaisant, and Chikurin Ibaraki 1. Each line was tested for reaction to BaMMV by mechanical inoculation followed by DAS-ELISA. Of 44 microsatellites that covered the genome, 22 polymorphic markers were tested on one susceptible and one resistant bulk, each comprising 30 lines. Differential markers and additional microsatellite markers in the same region were then tested on the whole population. A bootstrap analysis was used to compute confidence intervals of distances and to test the orders of the resistance gene and the closest markers. A segregation of 84 resistant/98 susceptible lines fitted a 1:1 ratio (chi 2=1.08, P=0.30), which corresponds to a single gene in this DH lines population. The resistance gene was flanked by two markers near the centromeric region of chromosome 6HS--Bmag0173, at 0.6+/-1.2 cM, and EBmac0874, at 5.8 +/- 3.4 cM. We propose to name this new resistance gene rym15. This resistance gene and associated markers will increase the possibilities to breed efficiently for new cultivars resistant to the barley mosaic disease
