    Key message
    Five putative candidate genes for OWBM resistance in Chinese winter wheat ‘Jimai 24' were identified via BSR-seq and differential expression analyses.
    Orange wheat blossom midge , Sitodiplosis mosellana , is one of the most serious threats to wheat production worldwide. Conventional gene mapping methods to identify genes require significant amounts of financial support and time. Here, bulked segregant RNA-seq was applied to profile candidate genes and develop associated markers for OWBM resistance. Previously, we identified a major QTL for OWBM resistance on...
