In an article entitled, “Molecular mapping of vernalization requirement and fertility restoration genes in carrot,” published in Sept. 26, 2012 issue of TAG Theoretical and Applied Genetics (vol 125, 2012) MS Alessandro and three of her associates reported the genes responsible for vernalization. Carrot (Daucus carota 2n = 18) is characterized by both annual and biennial varieties, the first-mentioned ones are suited tropical climate not requiring rigorous vernilization. They found one major gene controlling floral initiation and several male-fertility restoring genes. For the first time the authors developed the linkage map of the genomic regions that control vernalization response and fertility restoration. In order to prepare the linkage map they used an F2 progeny from the cross, annual cultivar ‘Criolla INTA’ and a petaloid male sterile biennial carrot. They named the two single dominant genes controlling early flowering habit and restoration of petaloid cytoplasmic male sterility as Vrn1 and Rf1, respectively. They prepared a map of all the nine chromosomes consisting of 355 markers with a total map length of 669 cM. Furthermore, they determined the average marker-to-marker distance of 1.88 cM. They also identified flanking markers of both the dominant genes. Identification of marker genes and their locations will provided important tools to carrot breeders to evolve varieties with desirable traits.
