We report the development of a codominant sequence characterized amplified region (SCAR) marker linked to bacterial wilt resistance in tomato line Hawaii 7996. Bulked segregant analysis was employed for rapid identification of RAPD markers linked to resistance genes. Genomic DNA from six resistant F9 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) and six susceptible F9 RILs, which derived from a cross between S. lycopersicum Hawaii 7996 (resistant parent) and S. pimpinellifolium WVa 700 (susceptible parent) were pooled in to an R-pool and an S-pool, respectively. A total of 800 RAPD primers were screened and only six primers (UBC#176, 205, 287, 317, 350, and 676) showed polymorphism between R- and S- pools. Of these, only two markers UBC#176 and 317 revealed a 100% linkage in the individual plants comprising the contrasting bulks. Of these, the marker UBC#176 was converted into a codominant SCAR marker and designated as SCU176-534. The marker SCU176-534 was confirmed by genotyping the individual of the R- and S- pools and gave the same result as UBC#176. When the marker SCU176-534 was further validated for association with resistance and its potential for maker-assisted selection (MAS) in 92 tomato lines and cultivars, the results showed that none of these carries the resistance gene. Thus, SCAR marker SCU176-534 can be used in early selection of resistant lines when Hawaii 7996 is used as a parent in a breeding program. © 2015, Korean Society for Horticultural Science and Springer-Verlag GmbH.
