Pollen irradiation panel
Very quick method
Small population size
Low retention frequencies ( 30-89%)
Radiation hybrid mapping is an efficient method to generate high-resolution maps that are independent of meiotic recombination. Here, we report a quick, high throughput, and cost-effective approach, based on pollen irradiation, to construct physical maps of all seven D genome chromosomes simultaneously. Panels based on pollen irradiation at 1.5 krad to 2.0 krad have been generated. Subsets of these RH panels were characterized using SSR markers and an average marker retention frequency of 92.6%, 84.1% and 66.5 %, for 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 krad treatments were estimated, respectively. A portion of one panel representing 89 samples was tested using the DArT marker platform. This resulted in the construction of radiation hybrid maps for all seven D genome chromosomes based upon 650 DArT markers. Total map distances for chromosomes 3D and 7D were 1819.7 cR2000 and 3279.0 cR2000,respectively. The total map distance ratio between genetic maps and RH maps (cM/cR2000) for these chromosomes (3D and 7D) were estimated at 1:15 and 1:13, respectively. Marker orders were comparable to previously reported genetic maps. We compared average marker distances from genetic maps and RH maps, based on co-segregating markers and the cM/cR2000 ratio was found to be 1:18. Markers derived from various BAC contigs are now being tested to estimate the physical map resolution of the developed RH panels. High resolution RH maps will be valuable for analysis of a great number of biologically and agronomically important genes, as well as in the comparative genomics studies of other grass genomes.

Development Of Pollen Irradiated Radiation Hybrid Mapping Panel
Fig.1. Schematic presentation of production of wheat D-genome radiation hybrids (DGRHs). Pollens of the hexaploid wheat (Triticumaestivum, n=3x=21, ABD) landrace ‘Chinese Spring’ treated with gamma-rays were crossed to the tetraploid wheat (T. turgidum, 2n=4x=28, AABB) variety ‘Altar 84’. After observing viable seed set, embryos and endosperms were harvested independently from each seed. Embryos were transferred to embryo rescue media for their regeneration into respective plants. Endosperms were used directly for DNA extraction. Each such embryo-derived plant and endosperm event independently represent a Radiation hybrid mapping panel. Important features of this scheme for the production of a mapping panel is that the irradiated D-genome chromosomes will be in the hemizygous condition and lesions on A and B chromosomes from T. aestivum will be masked by the presence of normal counterparts from T. turgidum. Consequently, this panel will preferentially reveal lesions on D-genome chromosomes. From a mapping perspective, DGRHs permit the simultaneous mapping of all D-genome chromosomes, however polymorphic markers between CS and Altar could be used for mapping of A and B genome chromosomes as well.

(4c): RH map of 7DS-4 at the extreme right, correlated with 7D bin map in the middle, on the left side of the bin map there is RH map of the centromeric region and is compared with 7D genetic map, showing that 8 cM distance of genetic map is corresponding to 673.2 cR to RH map of the region.
Characterization Of Pollen Irradiated Radiation Hybrid Panels
Initial characterization of the RH panels developed with different dosages was done using a set of 14 SSR markers
