Bulked segregant analysis (BSA) was used to identify seven random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers linked to the Rpf 1 gene. Rpf 1 confers resistance to Phytophthora fragariae var. fragariae, the causal agent of red stele root rot in Fragaria spp. The bulked DNAs represented subsets of a F1 population obtained from the cross Md683×Senga Sengana which consisted of 60 plants and segregated in a 1:1 ratio for resistance or susceptibility to race 2.3.4 isolate NS2 of P. fragariae. Seven markers were shown to be linked to Rpf 1 and were generated from four primers; five of these markers were in coupling phase and two in repulsion phase with respect to the gene. A linkage map of this resistance gene region was generated using JoinMap 2.0TM. The manner in which Rpf 1 and the linked markers co-segregated indicated that they are inherited in a disomic fashion. These markers could enable gene pyramiding and marker-assisted selection of resistance genes in strawberry breeding programmes.
