Soybean cyst nematode (SCN, Heterodera glycines Ichinohe) is the most destructive pest of soybean worldwide. Host plant resistance is an effective approach to control this pest. Plant introduction PI 567516C has been reported to be highly resistant to multiple-HG types of SCN. The objectives of this study were to identify and map novel quantitative trait loci (QTL) for SCN resistance to six HG types (also known as races 1, 2, 3, 5, 14, and LY1). Mapping was conducted using 250 F(2:3) progeny derived from a Magellan (susceptible) × PI 567516C (resistant) cross. F(6:7) recombinant inbred lines (RILs) developed from the F(2:3) progeny were employed to confirm the putative QTL identified. A total of 927 polymorphic simple sequence repeats (SSR) and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers were genotyped. Following the genetic linkage analysis, permutation tests and composite interval mapping were performed to identify and map QTL. Four QTL were associated with resistance to either multiple- or single-SCN HG types. Two QTL for resistance to multiple-SCN HG types were mapped to Chromosomes 10 and 18 and have not been reported in other SCN resistance sources. New QTL were confirmed by analysis of 250 F(6:7) RILs from the same population. SSR and SNP markers closely associated with these QTL can be useful for the development of near-isogenic lines for fine-mapping and positional cloning of candidate genes for SCN resistance.
