Bulked Segregant Analysis: DNAs from the four most resistant and four most susceptible recombinant inbred lines were combined into their respective bulks. A total of 131 decamer References primers were used to discover random amplified (RAPD) polymorphisms among the parents that were also observed in Blair MW, Muñoz C, Garza R, Cardona C (2006) Molecular mapping of genes for resistance to the bean pod weevil (Apion the resistant and susceptible bulks.
