A new co-dominant molecular marker, CaETR, was developed based on allelic sequence length polymorphism in an ethylene receptor-like gene located in the genomic region of a QTL (QTLAR1) conferring ascochyta blight resistance in chickpea. This marker not only discriminated resistance and susceptible phenotypes of chickpea to ascochyta blight, but also easily detected heterozygous genotypes. Using the CaETR marker in combination with a previously developed co-dominant SCAR marker (SCY17590) linked to another QTL (QTLAR2) it was possible to detect resistance alleles in 90 % of resistant accessions in a collection of landraces, advances breeding lines and cultivars, and also detected susceptible alleles in all cases.
