A genetic linkage map consisting of 435 molecular markers has been constructed using a doubled-haploid mapping population derived from a cross between the Australian barley feed variety Galleon and Haruna Nijo, a Japanese barley cultivar of high malting quality. This map was used to locate the genes conferring CCN and SFNB resistance from Galleon and to locate malting and brewing quality genes from Haruna Nijo. Closely linked markers to the trait loci have been identified and are now being widely implemented in Australian breeding programs.
