Abstract Primers to 43 genes, including those involved in the phenylpropanoid and volatile pathways, cell wall, ethylene and polyamine metabolism, and from Prunus linkage group (LG) 6 were tested in red raspberry (Rubus idaeus) cultivars Latham and Glen Moy, and 40 were polymorphic. Thirty-seven genes were subsequently mapped in the 'Latham' x 'Glen Moy' population and were placed across all seven Rubus LG. This brings to 97 the total number of genic markers mapped in this Rubus mapping population. Fifteen genes are associated with existing quantitative trait loci for ripening, cane diseases, including yellow rust (Phragmidium rubi-idaei), cane botrytis (Botrytis cinerea), spur blight (Didymella applanata), and cane spot (Elsinoe veneta) or fruit color in R. idaeus and can be used for identifying bacterial artificial chromosome clones for physical mapping studies. A cluster of four genes from Prunus LG6 mapped together to Rubus LG3, suggesting that there may be sufficient synteny between these Rosaceae over small genomic regions that can be exploited in future studies.
