Bulked segregant analysis (BSA) identifies molecular markers associated with a
phenotype by screening two DNA pools of phenotypically distinct plants for markers with skewed
allele frequencies. In contrast to gel-based markers, hybridization-based markers such as SFP, DArT
or SNP generate quantitative allele-frequency estimates. Only DArT, however, combines this
advantage with low development and assay costs and the ability to be deployed for any plant species
irrespective of its ploidy level. Here we investigate the suitability of DArT for BSA applications using
a barley array as an example.
