High-throughput genotyping of wheat-barley amphiploids utilising Diversity Arrays Technology (DArT)

Hordeum chilense, a native South American diploid wild barley, is one of the species of the genusHordeum with a high potential for cereal breeding purposes, given its high crossability with other members of the Triticeae tribe. Hexaploid tritordeum (×Tritordeum Ascherson et Graebner, 2n=6×=42, AABBHchHch) is the fertile amphiploid obtained after chromosome doubling of hybrids between Hordeum chilense and durum wheat
